Hints for the university from the experience of the land

Summary/Abstract: A university aspiring to transcend categorizations of thought and spirit of familiarity is, at the same time, a space which binds us and anchors, it is an area of struggle which imposes on us certain obligations, and finally, it is a place which reveals our safe space, even if we freely slip between concepts, methods, tools and goals. What would a university be without the experience of the land? A neutral structure and a global arena? Hubris of knowledge/universal power drawing up systemic plans? The land is the ground for building located reflection and a separate, autonomous core of the university. The oikological humanities are predestined to reflect upon such conceived land, especially since they do not cease to increase the concern for home and, at the same time, emphasize the persuasive thinking about it.
