Read TEXT 4A again:Steht Deutsch heute im Schatten von Englisch? Wenn man die heutigen Verhältnisse mit den früheren vergleicht, muβ man unumwunden die Frage bejahen. Deutschsprachige Wissenschaftler, vor allem Naturwissenschaftler, veröffentlichen heute oft genausoviel auf englisch wie auf deutsch. Aber Deutsch bleibt als Wissenschaftssprache interessant, weil in dieser Sprache zahlreiche klassische, bahnbrechende Theorien formuliert wurden, z. B. Albert Einsteins Relativitätstheorie, Max Webers oder Karl Marx' sozialwissenschaftliche Theorien oder Ludwig Wittgensteins und Martin Heideggers Philosophien. Obwohl die meisten dieser Texte in englischer Übersetzung vorliegen, lohnt sich doch für viele Akademiker die Mühe, diese im Original zu lesen.
