"Open Your Mouth" – Karlsruhe Lecture Series

"Open Your Mouth" –
A vivid social discourse

The Karlsruhe Lectures presented under the heading of “Open Your Mouth” or their existence in the absence of painful processes. The Karlsruhe Academy of Advanced Dental Studies has invited the public and members of the dental profession to these lectures since 1983.
It has always been the case that those who are in the process of being in a position to live their lives and who they are.
“Open your mouth” is the sentence at the beginning of any activity by a dentist. Persons seek the dentist’s help, and are ready to open their mouth, in a state of health. By treating his patients’ teeth, the dentist preserves their mouth, face, self-confi dence, and speech.
Opening one’s mouth in the dentist’s chair and doing so in public are ventures enjoying no great popularity, being inevitably associated with some amount of pain, and yet are indispensable. The speakers presenting Karlsruhe “Open-Your-Mouth” lectures, their lifes’ achievements and their topics of choice assign model character to the “Open Your Mouth” topos. It amalgamates into an impressive symbiosis dental and societal interventions.

The speakers and their subjects

Michael Zammit Cutajar

Protecting the Global Climate
"A political as well as an ethical question arises in my mind. We prefer democracy to all other forms of government. But future generations whose interests we can not express their preference today. How can democracy reach consensus and generate action with regard to the interests of the future? Another question arises – that on climate change and poverty. If we want to save the world, what exactly do we want to save? It really is a very unequal and unfair world. It would be immoral to aim at at the same time, deny the poor access to energy. On the other hand, expressed in more positive terms, bringing the poor renewable types of energy, in the rural areas of the big developing countries, could be far less than providing energy in the classical way."

Achille Mbembe

Africa in the New Century
"To tease out alternative possibilities for human life in this age of neoliberal individualism, we need to connect in an entirely new way the project of non-racialism to that of human mutuality. In the last instance, non-racialism is truly about radical sharing and universal inclusion. In this sense, non-racialism is the antithesis of the rule of the market. The domination of politics by the countless human lives and the production in every corner of the globe of vast stretches of dead water and dead land. To reopen the future of our planet, we want to learn how to share it among the humans, but also between the humans and the non-humans."

Prof. Dr. Bernhard Poerksen

Illusions of Truth – The Power of Certainty.
"At first glance this may sound like bad news at the end. Because there is no decision that would automatically lead to the restful benchmark of a firm and everlasting truth. And at second glance – at least that’s what I hope – it’s excellent good news, because of the undecidable question about the good, the right way of living and acting shows that we’re free , condemned to freedom in a sense, and condemned to responsibility. And we can take the right decisions, or we may be wrong and fall prey to illusion and believe in one truth that one day may turn out to be illusion. But however this may be inevitably on us, how we see the situation and evaluate the conditions. Each and every one of us counts whenever he opens his mouth."

Petros Markaris

The Writer and the Cities
"There is only one way to experience a city: by walking around it, to enjoy it most, without any aim. Why aimlessly? Well – because it’s so much better if the city is coming to you rather than the other way round. Taxi cabs and cars are not used because of a city only streets and shop windows, wellkept modern and historic buildings – a city mainly is its people. And people are moving differently in every city."

Rafik Schami

The Courage, Dignity and the Word.
A Request to Call a Spade a Spade.
"Freedom is not a luxury for a few people or countries. It is a collective dream of mankind. Freedom is much older than democracy and at the same time, its precondition. The privilege of free expression of thought without considering descent, religion or position. Diversity of opinion is a treasure, a luxury good, a child of democracy and freedom. Every democracy should benefit from it."

Dr. Philipp Rösler

Health in Germany – a Special Topic
"Thus, the concept of “real reasons” – and many failures in this regard – but you can not do so. Otherwise politics will change from the basic ideal to an ideology because you think you must now implement what you once thought out at the conference table – cost what it may. Trying at times, but, in the end, is quite a good thing."

Matthias Horx

The Wisdom of Crisis –
The Essence of Transformation
"In order to understand this process, we must understand what the difference is between change and transformation. Change always happens under external coercion – as a result of turbulences in the economy, environment, and political conditions. Search events force people to respond, to adjust. Transformation really means something different. It means shaping and designing change proactively based on human insight. We want to develop choices as a result of our own perception of various possibilities. In principle, every human being and every society has a choice as far as the future is concerned. And instead of focusing on situations of increasing gravity and fear, we want to emphasize aspects of imagination and cooperation. We want to put the question in a different way."

Prof. Dr. Wangari Maathai

Environment, Democracy and Peace: A Critical Link
"But over and above I think we really need a lot of political. It’s very easy for us ordinary people to get excited and to feel like we could do it. But political will be extremely important and we hope that we do not have democratic governance with respect for human rights rule of law, respect for diversity. That’s the basis for being able to manage the resources in a responsible way and in an accountable way."

Dr. Wolfgang bowl

The Political Responsibility of Europe for Steadiness and Peace in the Balkans
"The Balkans – a region full of wealth. And I believe that, quite generally, this region, the Danube region, described by Humboldt as one of the most exciting areas of the world 150 years ago, wants to be among Europe’s most promising economic regions and the most fruitful and productive ones in the world next 20 to 30 years. And we take part in it. But we must do something for it. We must be ready to offer young people a perspective. We must make scientific cooperation possible. There must be a brain drain. It would be a disaster if the young and highly qualified left the region. We in Europe must see to it that the Balkan States do not become a poorhouse but a center for the gifted. This, I think, is the unique opportunity that can be offered by the European Union. Therefore, those who invest in this future now want to benefit themselves later on."

Dr. Siegfried Jaschinsky

The Role of the Banks for Germany Industry
in the Age of Globalization
"In the global capital market environment the basic challenge is to find a new and stable balance between two opposite poles, i.e. horizons on the one hand and on the other, the companies’ chances for a sustained development. In future this will be a critical question for German industry. As banks therefore want to find the right measure and balance between these two poles in order to enhance the value-added of our national economy and give up obsolete and rigid attitudes at the same time. “

Dr. Mohamed ElBaradei, M.A..

Putting Teeth in the Nuclear Non-Proliferation
and Disarmament Commitments
“The longer we delay in placing sensitive nuclear operations under multinational control. They fall into terrorist hands. The longer effective verification authority is not universally in place, the more the potential for clandestine activity. As long as disarmament measures are not progressing meaningfully, efforts to strengthen nuclear nonproliferation want to be poisoned by cynicism, and more countries will try to “join the major leagues”. And the longer the Security Council is not acting systematically, equitably and effectively, as the guardian of international peace and security, the more its legitimacy wants to be undermined, and a sense of insecurity will continue to prevail. The irony is that we know the problems, and we know the solutions. All the human family, the sanctity of all human life and the core values ​​we all share – a civilization that is humane and just. “

Stephen K. Green, M.A..

Asia Sets Foot on the World Stage –
Is there a New World Order?
The rise of China and India wants to change the framework of international relations. I would go as far as to characterize the economic modernization of Asia as the most far-reaching effect of globalization so far. If we accept this, then what does it mean for today’s rich countries including the leading European economies? Listening to the pessimists one could think that the collapse of the West was imminent. However, I am not a pessimist. Europe has made it its ability to reinvent itself to the test time and again. One should not underestimate this ability. “

Prof. Dr. Lilia Shevtsova

Putins Russia – New Global and
Domestic Challenges of a Shaper World Power
“The second possible path for president Putin – reform of the regime – is riskier, without guarantee of success, and with a likelihood that he might break his neck. Wisely, reform could end up in Gorbachevism, with the leader losing control of power and events. But Vladimir Putin could be lucky. He or she has been deprived of his or her responsibility in a state of emergency the leader but on the rule of law. That would be a new chapter in Russian history. Overcoming the self and finding new impulses or a new destiny is enough to make any nation great and any leader worth remembering. “

Prof. Dr. W. Michael Blumenthal

Jews in Germany – Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow
“The nice and admirable fact is this generation, the post-68 generation, at last has faced up to the past; that there is now a whole network of institutions in the Federal Republic which are facing up to the past; that people, or just us, our children, open-mindedly in order to learn that Jews were not only victims or ordinary citizens of God, bright or stupid, fat or slim, rich or poor, like all the others. “

Wolfgang Thierse

A Future for the East.
German Unity Lakes in a European Perspective
“The economic situation especially in the new German states is complicated, troubling, contradictory. Actually, the eastern and western parts of Germany are undergoing a fundamental process of change which has not been coped with by far, thus in the western part of Germany. For that reason, there is no resignation nor for any child of western arrogance. I would not say that East could be longer. However, it is a fact that nothing will work without the West. “

The Right Honorable Lord Dr. Ralf Dahrendorf

Common Value Concepts – Are They Necessary even in 2001?
There is almost nothing as bad as the randomness of a world without stability, for the way from anomie to tyranny is short. We need pro-active efforts seeking common value concepts, even in the 21st century. This means, above all, that we need the same. Providing a reason year by year is the achievement of the Karlsruhe Academy of Advanced Dental Studies. We owe thanks to this institution. “

A Multimedia Report on, and Analysis of, the State of the Profession

The Dentist of the Future – 40 Years of the Karlsruhe Academy of Advanced Dental Studies.
“The more freedom a society enjoys, and the more individuality it has, the more it needs to consider how to fill these forms without the government machine. I am impressed by the Karlsruhe Academy, which is self-supporting, and where I am asking myself what grants-in-aid it would need if it were a public institution. “(Lothar Späth, April 4, 1987)

His Grace, the Most Reverend and Right Honorable Dr. George Leonard Carey

The Millennium and the Soul of Europe
“But the law of God has become internalized. It is not simply a matter of how we act: we must first and foremost. When the law is no longer lodged in the human heart. When the absolute character of ‘thou shalt’ is called into question, the prospect begins to open on a slide towards moral darkness. “

Dr. Haris Silajdzic

Euro and the Islam
“We all thought in our country that it could never happen to us. A philosopher said that between a normal and a criminal is five meals – missing meals. So, a human being is capable of everything. It is too bloody to be healed by cynic realpolitics. It’s just not human to apply to Bosnia. It is not a natural catastrophe. It’s a manmade catastrophe. “

Carla Del Ponte

The Fight Against Organized Crime:
Fighting the Symptoms or Going to the Roots?
But sometimes, institutions, institutions of the economy, government, and society. If that crime is organized, it may take metastatic proportions, like a cancerous growth. I think we have every reason therefore to take the problem of organized crime very seriously. “

Otto von der Gablentz

The Way to a European Germany –
Foreign Politics in the Experience of Ambassador
“Europe is no substitute for the old nation state, but is still in the process of experimenting with new forms of political organization, political innovation, which are up to the challenges of our modern world. An honest attitude vis-à-vis its history remains essential for Germany and our position in the world. This implies a culture of restraint in pursuing narrow national goals. Otherwise we would become stumbling blocks on the road to cooperation in Europe. “

Dr. Irfan Ljubijankic

Bosnia and Hercegovina – Challenge and Trial for Europe
“Man does not live by bread alone. That is a sentence, a thought that one can read, understand or not understand. In Bosnia we understood it perfectly. Those who killed people in Sarajevo and in Bosnia for three and a half years – perfectly young men, well fed, strong, not hungry – killed people in cold blood in broad daylight. But they were hungry of soul. “

* This paper was not presented because the speaker had become a victim of the man in Bosnia before the date of his lecture."

Dr. Dr. H. c. Jehan Sadat

My Experiences with Women in the Middle East
“Yes, women must be liberated, though not from Islam. In today’s world, women must be liberated from archaic, paternalistic tribal rites which have nothing to do with Islam. Many people use Islam as an excuse for being allowed to preserve the archaic.

Yitzhak Navon

Prospects of Peace in the Middle East
“The founding fathers of the State of Israel does not only dream about independence, but wished for this state of supreme moral, scientific and human quality. A just society, built on democracy, on law, on justice. In order to materialize all this, we need peace with our neighbors. Peace which wants to break free from the nightmare of tears, destruction and bereavement, and wants to enable a new dawn to rise in our skies. “

His Eminence Dr. H. c. Agostino Cardinal Casaroli

Between History and Prophecy
“It will be good, therefore, if those responsible for the lives of people make no exclusive choice between history and prophecy. While their feet stay solidly planted on the ground of history, the tale of prophecy stemming from a comprehensive view of mankind and its history will lend distinction to what they do and, finally, approval to the most profound reality of human beings by the lessons of history alone. This is also a wish for politicians and for the world. “

Dr. Colette Flesch

The European Significance of a
United Germany in a Unified Europe
"I know that a lot of soul-searching is going on in Germany about whether or not there is an amendment to the constitution, allow, for instance, units of the federal armed forces deployed within the framework of the United Nations. As a result of their economic strength and their political situation, they are also an important partner in Europe. I would like to encourage the Germans to take on the responsibility which goes with these positions, and thus in the interest of an accelerated unification process within the framework of the European Union. “

Prof. Dr. Dr. H. c. Erwin Chargaff

The Stream of Knowledge and Its Banks
“If I were an omnipotent Manchu Emperor of the child known in China in the Middle Ages, I would say: Immediate attenuation of the knowledge is absolutely imperative. Of course, everybody wants to see this as a dystopia. However, I can only say: True knowledge is wonderful and broadens the mind; empty knowledge is fatal, it suffocates the mind. As Adam and Eve are known to have been finished – not by God – with the ability to recognize what is good and what is evil, we should have no problems in distinguishing the two. “

Prof. Dr. Dr. Reinhard Loew

The Ethical Explosiveness of Genetic Engineering
“The ethical explosiveness of genetic engineering is based essentially on the concept of the relationship between natural sciences and medicine. If, in analogy with the activities of a physician, we perceive science as being related to people, I see no problems with the outcome of the ethical debate on genetic engineering. However, in a similar way to, and as a diffuse point of intersection of, “truly” exact and objective sciences, i. physics, chemistry, biology, this would have been at the price of sacrificing the human aspect. “

Dr. Anthony Edward Rupert

The Challenge of Africa
“Today, due to the apartheid, we are seen as oppressors. We have to face the most difficult trek of all – away from any discrimination. I am sure we shall succeed. We are of Africa – the pale-skinned catalysts that help to make things work. My message to the West is: Please do not turn in upon yourselves. Your future too lies in Africa. We need you now. ‘Southern Africa is like a zebra’, Chief Buthelezi, the leader of the great Zulu nation, recently said: ‘If the white parts are injured, the black parts will die too’. I agree and say: ‘If the black parts are injured, the white parts want the too."

Lothar Späth

The Federal Republic of Facing New Challenges –
Do We Need a New Concept for the Social Welfare State?
“Politics reflects the state of society. What I wanted to suggest is the need to resume this fundamental debate. The individuality, sense of freedom and, ultimately, the inner substance which are prerequisites for a modern, peaceful future society. “

Dr. Joseph Luns

How to Maintain World Peace in the Years to Come?
“The common defense organization of the North Atlantic states has become the most important contribution to the preservation of peace in the world. However, in a realistic assessment, one thing should always be remembered: The Supreme Commander must always be American, while the Secretary General must be from Europe. You will understand my preference for a politician from one of the smaller European states for this politically highly important office. “

Dr. Dr. H. c. Theo summer

Will the 21st Century Become the Pacific Century?
“Yet it is a fact that interest in Asia has grown immensely in the United States over the past few years. This interest is not altogether new. What is new is the fact that interest in Europe seems to decline at the same time. The Americans are disappointed in Europe. They do not know what course Europe is steering. They are on a wave of huge optimism about the future. What they perceive in the Old World they are referring to as ‘europessimism’ or ‘eurosclerosis’, a general term of confidence in the future, and inflexibility. From their point of view, the Europeans for years have got nothing but worries and frustration. “

Rudolf v. Bennigsen-Foerder

The Federal Republic of Germany –
Performance-oriented or “All-Risks-Insured” Society??
“As entrepreneurs, we are used to developing strategies for different courses of the future. I am worried that there may be no longer a long period of time with unusually low, or even no, economic growth without political and social conflicts arising. Growing recognition of the need for structural change is becoming the biggest challenge in the world. “

Dr. Peter of Siemens

Ecology plus Economy – Economic Growth for a Clean Environment
“The idea of ​​the life of the family” was “The basis of our life. The profound statement by the real father of technically oriented natural sciences, Sir Francis Bacon, that ‘nature to be commanded must be obeyed’, this foundation of our life and work, has more and more sunk into oblivion. “
