Germany

By Theodor W. Adorno

In December 1945 Thomas Mann wrote a recognized letter to Adorno during which he formulated the primary of montage followed in his novel general practitioner Faustus. the author expressly invited the thinker to think about, with me, how one of these paintings and that i suggest Leverkhns paintings may perhaps kind of be virtually discovered. Their shut collaboration on questions about the personality of the fictitious composers putatively overdue works (Adorno produced particular sketches that are integrated as an appendix to the current quantity) successfully laid the root for one other alternate of letters.

Bildung und Wissenschaft seit der Wende: Zur Transformation by Hans-Werner Fuchs

Germany

By Hans-Werner Fuchs

1. 1 Zum Thema In den Jahren 1989 und 1990 vollzogen sich in Europa Umbrüche mit welt­ weiten Folgen. Die friedlichen Revolutionen in den mittelosteuropäischen Staaten, die Auflösung der Warschauer Vertragsorganisation und des sowjeti­ schen Macht- und Einflußbereiches, der Zerfall der Sowjetunion und nicht zuletzt die Wiedererlangung der deutschen Einheit sind Teile eines Prozesses, der in historischer Perspektive mit dem Ersten Weltkrieg einsetzte und erst 1 durch die genannten Ereignisse einen vorläufigen Abschluß fand . Die histo­ rischen Veränderungen erfordern eine Neuorientierung in einer Welt, in der Politik und politisches Denken seit dem Ende des Zweiten Weltkrieges von der Bipolarität antagonistischer Machtblöcke dominiert wurden und unter dem Signum Ost-West-Konflikt nahezu alle anderen politischen, ökonomi­ schen und gesellschaftlichen Entwicklungen überlagerten. 1990 nahm der durch die Teilung in Deutschland besonders deutlich her­ vorgetretene Ost-West-Konflikt ein Ende, kam der Zweite Weltkrieg zu ei­ nem auch formalen Abschluß. Im Zuge der Vereinigung beider deutscher Staaten und der in diesem Zusammenhang geschlossenen völkerrechtlichen Verträge wurde die Nachkriegsordnung obsolet. Die ehemaligen Siegermäch­ te bestätigten der vergrößerten 'neuen' Bundesrepublik Deutschland ihre völ­ kerrechtliche Souveränität, und mit der Republik Polen wurden noch offene, insbesondere territoriale Fragen rechtlich verbindlich geregelt. So konnten die äußeren Aspekte der Vereinigung im Jahr 1990 unerwartet zügig und kon­ fliktfrei gelöst werden.
