Three main types of dialogue are identified and critically discussed: managerial, emancipatory and pedagogic. The possibilities and potentials of each kind are analysed, and inherent problems are seen to arise in practice. Modern universities are assessed in terms of their ability to host and embody these different types, principally via the work of Bourdieu and Passeron. Discussion then turns on the kind of communication that would be needed in modern universities to overcome important social and organisational constraints. Finally, alternative conceptions are outlined, principally via the potential of electronic communication as a form of dialogue.
