    Abstract

    The world-wide move of Reform of Universities encounters a special echo in France, where there are some who reproach its challenging the French social model. This latter is based on a strict separation between the business world and the access system to basic rights, that are symbolized by the «Liberty, Equality, Fraternity» motto. The function of University in France would be to offer equal access to knowledge, and hence would consist in training the secondary education teachers. Taking part in the worldwide knowledge market would come only after. As often University echoes social expectations, the Reform of University in France would certainly see it through if all interested parts would be admitted to take part in negotiations. Autonomous Universities could manage according to a rational, turned on to a present and future, process, instead of a permanent urgency one, which induces quarrels which have nothing to do with science or the true humanities. Let's hope that France will be present at the knowledge European appointment.
