Alfons Söllner's Peter Weiss und die Deutschen: Die Entstehung einer PDF

By Alfons Söllner

Am Anfang dieses Buches stand ein Erstaunen: In der "Asthetik des Widerstands" fand ich viele Fragen authentischer, vielleicht sogar "objektiver" beantwortet als in der Wissenschaft, die sieh der Umwege der Theoriebildung und der Miihen der Tatsachensieherung glaubt riihmen zu miissen.

Allen wissenschaftspolitischen Beteuerungen zum Trotz bedeutet interdisziplinares Ar beiten naeh wie vor ein Risiko, das auf den AusreiBer selbst zuriiekzufallen droht.
