The Prussian Academy of Sciences and Humanities during the Weimar Republic
Hardtwig, Wolfgang
Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, v42 n4 p333-357 Dec 2004
The German Revolution of November 1918 dramatically altered the Academy's view of its relationship with government. In particular, the Academy's Prussian tradition had to be rethought. From initial wariness to grudging acceptance, the Academy came to accept the Weimar regime. This paper studies the politics of the Academy, uncovers factions and fault lines amongst its members, and offers a fresh interpretation on the Academy's relationship with Albert Einstein.
