According to the German weekly "Der Stern", Germany’s former Secretary of State, Joschka Fischer, got an offer to become a visiting professor at one of the United States’ leading universities, most likely at Princeton or Harvard. Although Fischer never received an university-entrance diploma, he autodidactically managed to become one of the world’s leading experts in non-traditional security issues during his long political career as founder and leader of Germany’s Green Party. Scholars in Boston will be envied for having the opportunity to attend his lectures. Personally, I have some suggestions for his lectures. Topics, which are all too seldom addressed: - "The philosophy of Hans Jonas and its impact on Green Politics" - "The roots of Sustainability" - "The heuristics of fear and the necessity of a global environmental regime" - "Securitizing Security: why unipolarity leads to a collaps of order" - "When power does not make a difference: why more states live in peace than theory admits" - "Do we really need you? The future of Transatlanticism"
