DPG on the statement from science organisations in Germany

Posted By Administration, 07 February 2017

3rd February 2017 - German Physical Society

„Wissenschaft ist ein hohes Gut und eine wichtige kulturelle Errungenschaft. Wissenschaftliches – also kritisches und kreatives – Denken bedarf eines entsprechenden gesellschaftlichen Umfeldes. Der freie Austausch von Meinungen, eine Kultur des Aufeinander-Hörens und des mit rationalen Argumenten geführten Diskurses sind Voraussetzungen dafür, dass gute Wissenschaft auf Dauer gedeihen kann. Insbesondere sind Dialog und Austausch auch über Grenzen hinweg für die Wissenschaft von vitaler Bedeutung. Umgekehrt kann die Wissenschaft dazu beitragen, eine Kultur der Toleranz und der Zusammenarbeit zu fördern.“ (DPG-Präsident Rolf-Dieter Heuer)
