The English term “Public History” is, as is so common for borrowed foreign words, discursively relaxing; an argumentative deus ex machina. It appears as an ideal compromise in a long-lasting and confusing German debate. There is much to be said in favour of this new approach and also for putting an end to theoretical pseudo-debates.
