La educación superior en el contexto de la posmodernidad: Entendimiento y reconciliación

This paper aims at promoting reflection and awareness about the need of a closer understanding among professors, authorities and university students on how higher education (purpose and goals) is perceived today. The study compares the Modernist and Postmodern perspectives of society and education, in order to identify the main points of divergence, as well as the possible ways of consensus. As a conclusion, new spaces are proposed to find intersubjectivity agreements, as a way to achieve the objective stated.
Keywords: Postmodernism, higher education, relativism, freedom of speech.
