Abstract: "In a speech to the German Bundestag in 1998, the well-known Holocaust scholar Yehuda Bauer stressed the role of intellectual elites and especially university professors in making the Holocaust possible. To this, he added the question: 'If we have indeed learnt anything, it is whether we do not still keep producing technically competent barbarians in our universities'. This article is a reflection on the implications of this question for present-day teaching and research in political science."
