Krystian Szadkowski and Jakub Krzeski have written a significant paper, In, Against and Beyond: A Marxist Critique for Higher Education in Crisis (2019), setting out a critical framework ‘to render visible what lies beyond the current form of higher education’ (1). Their critical framework attempts to reveal the trigger for ‘a chain reaction’, setting off a process for the ‘radical transformation of higher education and the way in which knowledge is produced and disseminated’. The purpose of their critique is to “bring about self-ruled, democratically organised global, national and local networks of co-operation in science’ and realise ‘a future free from capitalist domination’.
