Society and higher education are ruled by (a) structural, (b) functional and (c) mutual causal relations. Higher education is one of the facts of the society; it is a social phenomenon, of its own importance and specificities. As a social phenomenon, higher education is very similar or identical to its society, both structurally and functionally. This means that it has the kind of structure and the kind of functionality that the society has. Most of the characteristics of the society are, at the same time, the characteristics of higher education, and vice versa. Therefore, it is very harmful, and even dangerous, to claim that our education as a whole, including higher education, is of top quality. Such a claim is sociologically inaccurate, because the sociological truth is that all social phenomena of a society are, more or less, reflection of that society. There may be some positive aspects, but if the context and background is darkness, those aspects are not positive in their nature; they are such because they are in darkness.
Autistic view of higher education excludes from its horizon the interconnectedness of social development and education, that is, between the economy and education.
