Freie Berufe- Herausforderungen an die Wissenschaft


  • Deneke, Volrad


What are "liberal professions"? Their essence, their importance for the person as an individual and as a social act? Who or what do libereal professions challenge if they ask for requirements for the "science"? The questions formulate the confrontation of the self-image of liberal professions and scientists. The demand for individual liberty in social responsibility is owned to be a liberal professional as well as a scientist. The dynamic variety in the perception of occupational pictures of liberal professions lives in confrontation to the system of the science panorama. Hence, science about the essence and meaning/importance of liberal professions must be always lived encompassing faculty overlapping research, teaching and praxis.
