English abstract

The public pressure for greater accountability and efficiency enforces the increased use of accounting methods. As a consequence, great parts of the general Population are pushed towards obedience, and ultimately into slavery. In the University context, the ever increasing dominance of scientometrics – a discipline that is deeply rooted in soviet Bolshevism as well as Taylorism – as a measure of scientific Output and impact, has resulted in a surge of university bureaucracies everywhere. To solve this problem, the author calls for a revival of the Humboldtian ideal of the university.

German abstract

Dieses Essay konstatiert eine allseits um sich greifende Verbuchhalterung, die eine Versklavung breiter Bevölkerungskreise, darunter auch Wissenschaftler, bewirkt. Es werden insbesondere das Überhandnehmen szientometrischer Bewertungen wissenschaftlicher Leistungen sowie die zunehmende Bürokratisierung im Universitätsmanagement kritisiert. Als Lösungsmöglichkeit für den universitären Sektor schlägt der Autor eine Rückkehr zur Universität Humboldt'scher Prägung vor.
