This work of the Research Line Fundamentals of Educational Processes of Post-Graduation Education, at Faculty of Education, in Federal University of Goiás, asks about human formation in the current university. It is a theoretical study of historical and philosophical character which is based on biblioraphical study. The exercise of reflection on the subject intends to understand the contradictions inherent in the formation of the modern man. With economical, socio-cultural and political changes in the last centuries, the university is restructured and gains definition of organization that mischaracterizes it as social institution. Administered by the business logic, the university gets asleep what it truly proposes: training. The theoretical study discusses the origin and meaning of human formation for the Greeks of classical antiquity and, in the sequence, relates it to the birth of the university in the thirteenth century. It discusses the process of corruption of the educational institution from external interferences, especially of the state and market interests. Finally, the discussion highlights what remained of the university and what it can offer to students in the condition that it is inserted. It is notable the importance of keeping alive and highlighting the educational institution, even preserving what remains somewhat.
