Energy system transformation, climate change, genetic engineering and the corona crisis - public debates without references to science and research have long been unthinkable. The politicization of science poses new challenges. References to science communication alone often forget the political dimension of scientific knowledge.

Have ideas replaced ideology? Or is it returning as a smart spin doctor in a lab coat? How does it deal with its politicization? How does it deal with the pressure of polemicization? Does science itself become a political activist for enlightenment, facts and democracy?

Prof. Martin Stratmann, electrochemist, materials scientist and President of the Max Planck Society in conversation with Joachim Müller-Jung (FAZ).
