The author deals with the problem of adjustment to the Bologna process using the philosophical-political distinctions between the open and the guided intertraditional exchange, and the utopian and the piecemeal social engineering. In his opinion, the process might be perceived as a sort of cultural imperialism that need not be disastrous for its victims. The reform should create the conditions for the organization of of serious multidisciplinal studies at the university level (European studies, American studies, gender studies, peace studies etc.). Should the changes at the University of Zagreb be implemented systematically, though prudently, the results could be positive. However, the author warns that the role of tradition should not be underestimated nor the possibility of serious quandaries in the implementation of the reform of higher education excluded, even if the changes are introduced gradually.
