Dissertation Project:
The social debate about an unconditional basic income has undoubtedly flared up again. Scientific concepts and analyses can help to contribute to their progress. However, the risk of misunderstandings must be particularly taken into account in such accessible and comprehensive issues. Therefore, a basic explanation of what social sciences can contribute to this is given first. In compliance with and illustrating this, the demand of a universal basic income for possible attributes of a market economy society is discussed.
