In terms of methodology, the study utilizes critical discourse analysis and inter-discourse theory. It analyses two texts dealing with the issues of university bu-reaucracy, which combine elements of both science and literary procedure: J. Hvorecký’s Testament vedca (2015) and W. Halffman’s & H. Radder’s The Academic Manifesto: From an Occupied to a Public University (2015). The dis-course analysis compares contradictory narratives related to universities (J. Hvorecký’s narrative regarding vigorous managerialism of universities as the only possibility to save universities from total collapse and the “public uni-versity” narrative proposed by the philosophers of science W. Halffman & H. Radder) and problematizes the emphasized difference between bureau-cracy and managerialism.
