The University of the Future offers the American reader an insider's view of higher education in a socialist country, as well as the opportunity to see differences and similarities in higher education in capitalist and socialist societies. Part I of the book is devoted to a philosophical criticism of bureaucratic tendencies in capitalist society and a discussion of how such failings have affected higher education. Also included here is the author's argument for radical solutions that could be implemented through education. Part II contains an analysis of the present state of education in Yugoslavia and a comparison of education in Yugoslavia with that in the developed and the developing world. Specific concrete steps to achieve "the university of the future" are presented which stress the need for education to develop closer ties to mainstream economic and social activities.
