The university, the institution of higher education and research, the beacon of enlightenment, the incubator of knowledge, the guardian of rights, the maker of the law and the people of the law.
The highest and most prestigious academic institution “for the promotion of its goals and the sublimity of its mission”, which gives it this status in all countries of the world. How could it not? It is the fortress of human thought at its highest levels and the development of the most important and precious social wealth, which is human wealth. It is also the product of ancient schools and philosophies, beginning with the idealism of Plato and Aristotle. realism and ending with Dewey’s pragmatic ethics.
