Re: Serious allegations against Professor Christoph Mörgeli

Of course it is (or would be if reported correctly), but presumably people usually don't care. Until it makes headlines. Especially if one's terminated due to insufficient work when said person is member of the party that keeps bashing the very same administration they're a member of (in an extended sense). And then drags everybody and their dog before to the courts.

Re: Serious allegations against Professor Christoph Mörgeli

In a sense this reminds me of the refused naturalization of Nancy Holton. Both are using their rights in a way that generally seems to be considered extreme or over the top. So even though they act perfectly legal that need not mean the public doesn't care or mind.

Re: Serious allegations against Professor Christoph Mörgeli

An expert report, which the university refused to publish (was forced to do so by court order) Mörgeli and his superior Rüttimann concluded "that the thesis supervised by Prof.Dr.Rüttimann and Prof.Dr.Mörgeli didn't meet scientific medicin-historical standards for thesis' overwhelmingly due to insufficient supervision [by these two]."

The doctor titles however will not be withdrawn.

Frau Ritzmann, who's work was also inspected, is concluded to have excellent work.

Ouch!

Article in german.

I thought his profession was well known all along.
His profession but not the poor quality of his work.

Re: Serious allegations against Professor Christoph Mörgeli

Getting one's doctorate at the Institute of History of Medicine was said to be the easiest way to go already back in the 1960s, decades before Mörgeli came into the picture.

Some colleagues of mine did it, and the titles of their theses said it all: "The importance of the white coat in the history of dental medicine," "Famous German physicians born between 1830 and 1855, whose last name begins with a letter in the range M - Q," "Hand washing habits of pediatric nurses before WW II," to name just a few.

Seriously.

Re: Serious allegations against Professor Christoph Mörgeli

According to the article Rüttimann scored even lower than Mörgeli. That may mean is was an attribute of the institute itself just as much as of these two, which would make the scores by Dr. Ritzmann all the more noteworthy.

Btw where did Mörgeli do his doctor thesis, anybody know?

These sound more like BBC Mastermind categories
