of the TRILOGOS series »Interview Pearls« 2018

an Interview with: Prof. Dr. phil. Germain Weber | Psychology
recorded in the former facilities of Sigmund Freud / Vienna 2018


In this 10-minute video from the Trilogos series Interview Peals, Prof. Weber addresses the topic of personal responsibility from a psychological perspective.

To this end, he explains the role played by the ability to assume responsibility, as it is learned in early childhood in the closest family environment, through mother and father. This results in the later ability of a person to assume responsibility in their life, whether in a private or professional context.

Prof. Weber also discusses the extent to which the competence of the ability to assume responsibility is related to the development of trust in early childhood, which serves as a basis for assuming responsibility in the first place. In the further course of the child’s development, educational institutions, in particular, play a major role in enabling the young person to develop their ability to successfully assume responsibility.

However, before a person can assume responsibility outside of themselves, they need a healthy dose of self-responsibility.

These remarks by Prof. Dr. Weber are of great weight insofar as this subject area has been part of his traditional field of professional activity and research for many decades.
