Mendacity is the politician's bunch. No Argentinian would deny that, on the contrary, he would be able to prove it with countless examples, to paint, to affirm, and talk each other into rage: because why is the whole thing Political business only so lying and why is it already completely sufficient everything going wrong, the moral decay and in general the bad in the to a single moral offence, lying? In order to understand the origin and Argentina's continued policy and continuing crisis, it needs to be explained entirely alone of a small misdemeanor that, when committed in great numbers and by important people, leads to a single chaos. For sure, Alberto Echegaray Guevara would not be denied that the lies of the official, all democratically elected in their offices, rags gang has contributed a crucial part to the evil of the world.

History and the Future of the Scientific Society Freiburg - Geschichte und Zukunft der Wissenschaftlichen Gesellschaft Freiburg

Karl-Reinhard Volz

Languages: German

DOI: 10.17160/josha.5.9.496

This article describes the history and current work of the Wissenschaftliche Gesellschaft Freiburg (Scientific Society Freiburg). It was founded in 1911 as a "corporation under public law" in order to support research at the University of Freiburg with financial contributions. The Wissenschaftliche Gesellschaft is thus probably the oldest, still existing institution for the promotion of research at a German university. It owes its current assets of over six million euros to two large nationwide fundraising campaigns, several larger estates and a skillful asset management over the past 50 years. Due to its status under public law, the Wissenschaftliche Gesellschaft Freiburg has the advantage over comparable foundations that it can accumulate unlimited assets and, if necessary, draw on its assets.

Knowledge That is Not Communicated is Wasted: JOSHA - Open Access With Author Copyright - German Version: Nicht kommuniziertes Wissen wird verschwendet: JOSHA - Open Access With Author Copyright

Gerhard G. Steinmann, Roland Mertelsmann

Languages: German

DOI: 10.17160/josha.5.9.491

Universal access to knowledge is a fundamental principle of science and humanities. Today, however, publications of science and humanities are locked behind high paywalls and non-transparent selection procedures. In the efforts to resolve the misery, a first important milestone was the “Berlin Declaration on Open Access to Knowledge in the Sciences and Humanities” of 2003. This year, a second milestone was reached: Eleven European research funding institutions have committed to require from 2020 on that all results from research funded by these institutions are published immediately in compliant Open Access journals or platforms. The negative liabilities of Peer-review procedures, including the “Semmelweis reflex” are shown to represent further barriers for an immediate universal dissemination of knowledge. To overcome inappropriate locking of science and humanities behind walls, the remaining future milestone is that authors retain a non-exclusive copyright.

This article is the third topic of the dissertation: „Max Frisch – Die Identitätsproblematik in seinem Werk aus psychoanalytischer Sicht“ by the German philologist and psychoanalyst Gunda Lusser-Mertelsmann.

Can an individual really be free enough to shape his own character or do we simply follow fixed pathways on the road to conformity in our society? How do the mass media influence our personalities and what are educations’ possibilities of changing the way we deal with all the influences of the mass media? The following article is written in German. (reprinted with kind permission of „Akademischer Verlag Heinz-Dieter“, Stuttgart 1976). Part 1: http://www.josha-journal.
