The following questions will be worked on in the future:

TCI and science

  • How can TCI (re-)connect to current professional and scientific discourses, both in terms of content and language?
  • In which publication organs (outside the journal and community-internal organs) do scientists who work with TCI in their contexts publish?
  • How can TCI be made better known - outside the community and outside fields of activity with an affinity to TCI? In most scientific disciplines, TCI has not arrived as a possibility for didactic and pedagogical mediation, at least not yet.
  • What are the scientific foundations of work with TCI? - Are there empirical accompanying studies that can scientifically substantiate the "added value" of working with TCI?
  • How do we deal with the legacy (and specifically the estate) of Ruth Cohn? What Matthias and Michaela Scharer are currently putting into a systematic order must also be dealt with in terms of thematic content. Who can do this, how and in which "globe"?
