THE FEAST IS FINISHED? ON MASTER AND PUPIL
This article reflects on the relationship between master and pupil - more specifically, between university professors and their students. The authoress emphasizes the unusual nature of this relationship: its mutual character and the fact that it never ceases - the pupil draws on the knowledge of the master, but also represents a point of reference for him, and is his partner in the intellectual feast. She compares the atmosphere of the traditional university (in the context of the post-1956 Thaw in Poland) with the present post-secondary institutions, whose graduates attain their desired qualifications, but in which this link between master and pupil does not exist. Her mentor is Zygmunt Bauman.
