Das vorliegende Buch ist auch fur denjenigen, der sich seit Jahren und intensiv mit den Problemen des Allgemein- oder Hausarztes be schaftigt hat, eine Oberraschung: Es hebt vielfach das bisher nur Gespurte und Erfahrene in das helle Licht des BewuBtseins, es zieht nicht nur Bilanz uber arztliches SolI und Haben in der heutigen All gemeinpraxis, sondem folgert daraus konkrete Konsequenzen fUi die Zukunft, es stellt die wissenschaftliche Problematik dieses so al ten, jungen Fachgebietes" in das Zentrum der notwendigen Weiter entwicklung der modemen Medizin. Sturm hat eine groBartige Leistung vollbracht. Sein Buch wird zum Widerspruch reizen, das sollte es auch. Aber es wird genauso Besinnung, Nachdenken, Selbstkritik und Zustimmung auslosen. Denn es ist weit mehr, als der Autor fordert, namlich "Konzept fUr eine wissenschaftliche Grundlegung hausarztlicher Tatigkeit und fUr eine Wissenschaft yom Patienten." Es ist eine sehr personliche und deshalb auch sehr mutige Diagnose der zentralen Probleme un serer heutigen Medizin in Wissenschaft und Praxis. Diese Diagnose wird umfassend, sogar unter Einbeziehung der scenario in vielen anderen Uindem, gestellt. Sie ist auch insofem eine gute arztliche Diagnose, als sie eine ausreichende Behandlungsgrundlage zur LO sung dieser Probleme ergibt. Ich wiinsche diesem Buch nicht nur eine weite Verbreitung, zahlreiche aufmerksame und nachdenkliche Leser, sondem damber hinaus den Erfolg, an dem sich geistige Leistung immer messen iaBt: die beabsichtigte Veranderung unserer Wirklichkeit im Sinne des Autors.
