„Bierbank“ versus „Katheder“
Zur Abgrenzung von Marxismus und Kathedersozialismus am Beispiel Gustav Schmollers
Journal of Contextual Economics – Schmollers Jahrbuch, Vol. 111 (1991), Iss. 3 : pp. 437–455
From a very fundamental epistemological point of view it can be shown that the liberal, the "kathedersozialistisches" and the Marxist paradigm are each based on a particular assumption about the object of social science. Therefore the three epochal paradigms can be regarded as axiomatically characterized answers to the subjectobject-problem in social science. The "Kathedersozialismus" as an ethical socialism must be regarded as an attempt to qualify the Marxist judgement about the degree of subjectivity already destroyed in modern bourgeois society, by referring to elements, which precede the methodological individualism of the Enlightment.
