“Academic Freedom”- Possibilities and Limitations
This study focuses on a fundamental principle of academic life, namely academic freedom. It is defined as a set of rights of academic community members. The analysis highlights on the one hand, the possibilities, on the other the precautions and limitations that the teachers must take into account, when applying the rights that this form of freedom includes. Thus, freedom of research, freedom of expression and freedom in teaching don’t take place randomly, but are marked by a series of ethical, intellectual, institutional and social constraints.
