Desde mediados de octubre, los estudiantes austriacos ocupan la universidad de Viena para reivindicar la educación gratuita universal. Pero la cuestión de la financiación de la enseñanza superior no debe ser un tabú, afirma el economista Andreas Schibany en el diario Der Standard.
Se trata de un nombre que se escucha, sobre todo, en boca de los filósofos, quienes abandonan súbitamente su tradicional retiro cuando les parece que los principios que representa se ven amenazados: Wilhelm von Humboldt, el eterno mito de una política educativa europea concreta [Wilhelm von Humboldt (1767-1865), padre de la universidad Humboldt de Berlín y del principio de la libre investigación y de la confrontación de disciplinas en pro del avance del conocimiento]. Todo intento de reforma del sistema educativo se percibe como una expresión de odio frente a la obra del célebre lingüista y filósofo y como una amenaza a ese lugar donde el conocimiento espiritual del mundo por simple amor a la sabiduría todavía es posible y donde el concepto de educación heredado de la Ilustración cae, hoy, víctima de la ley del mercado. (Der Standard, 30.10.2009)
