زابينه بيرنبيك (رئيسة قسم التعليم العالي، المجلس الألماني للعلوم والإنسانيات، ألمانيا). ثمّة كثير من المشكلات والشكاوى المشتركة المتعلّقة بالإنسانيات في البلدان الناطقة بالإنكليزية وفي ألمانيا، لكنّ هنالك أيضًا فارقًا مهمًّا: في ألمانيا، الفروع التخصّصية التي تُعنى بالثقافة واللغة والدين والتاريخ هي “علومٌ بين العلوم” (Wissenschaften unter Wissenschaften). وما من تمييز بين ما يُسمّى “Geisteswissenschaften” (العلوم الإنسانية) ومباحث أخرى من خلال تسميات خاصّة (مثل الإنسانيات أو الآداب الحرّة)، ولذلك يُنظَر إليها وتُعامَل على قدم المساواة لناحية اختيار الطلّاب أو المسارات الوظيفية أو تمويل الأبحاث.
