Replacing God? On aspirations and qualifications of the so called “experts”

Zbigniew Drozdowicz

Abstract


In these remarks I take the issue of the so called “experts”, but just the “so called” because of their aspirations which significantly surpass their qualifications and make us to put a justified question mark. It is not a singular issue but a group one, and in particular those social groups which in different places and times had gained social trust and did abuse that trust in a certain way. There is also a cultural and social problem – i.e. such “experts” are both conditioned in their aspirations qualifications by certain cultural and social reality as well, thanks to their special position in that reality, they had and still have significant influence on such a transformation of this reality to make it create a convenient circumstances for their agency. It all makes me treat these remarks (using a court language) not as a charge of specific people, but speaking in a specific case.

Keywords
