The seminar is dedicated to particularly own texts, in other words texts from her feather (alias PC). And I say rather immediately the triple motto of the seminar:
- of the clarity establish an altar (after Julian Schutting)
- Red pencil unessential
- do not fear.

We will read the texts, interpret, discuss, and we ask: What do we see in this text, what the text wants to say us, which meanings meet us, what we do not understand, everybody understands possibly the same, there are lacks of clarity? What do we do if our text is not understood by which does a text (un) become clear? How can we speak about a text?
And you already hear it: We go to the scientific language, also deal with the first step of your text, with the writing, the real pleasure: What does one recognizes a good text? How can one help up a failed text? Would something let easier, clearer, say shorter?
My seminar method can be called as a “theory-supported learning in own text“. This method founds on the principle „esteem of the present texts“. No author may get under defensive pressure. Are not criticised opinions and theses of the writers. In the centre not the views of the writers stand, already not at all the writers, but her texts: Which demands are made to a scientific text? How do I find a sovereign language?
