The author studied biology, chemistry, philosophy, psychology and sociology. In terms of academic degrees, he first obtained the state examination in biology and chemistry, then passed the pre-diploma examination in sociology and subsequently passed the viva voce examination for his dissertation in biology didactics with pedagogy and psychology as minor subjects. After many years of work in the school service, he still ran a restaurant with wine trade and events in the cultural segment in his retirement. The contacts and conversations with artists, musicians and literary figures were a particular benefit during this time. Now that this phase is also over, there is time to take up sociological-ecological approaches from his student days again and expand them in the direction of a sociologically and psychologically underpinned economic theory in order to put them into writing for discourse.
