The universalism of the university ideal experienced crucial events of fragmentation and divisions. This chapter discusses these stages and the explanations of Talmon to them. The idea of university continuity distinguishes between past sporadic learning and teaching examples and what later developed and termed the academic world. The church, academic freedom, and the conflict between them; the intellectual's hunger for more knowledge versus attempts to restrain this feeling; the universal university versus the national university; the risks the university experienced when it became a national institution - - Talmon referred to this and other issues. The chapter brings his answers to the various issues that the national university has to cope with.
