The term "profession" was originally applied to medicine, law, and the priesthood. There are different views about their special characteristics. Parsons (1968) names the requirement of formal training, as well as the ability and institutional means of controlling the socially responsible application of competence, and adds that professions are based on humanistic disciplines. Wilensky speaks of professions wherever a substantial proportion of a scientific discipline is applied (1972, p. 199). In contrast, Hesse makes no reference to the scientific disciplines; he concentrates on the monopoly of certain social opportunities and the expectations placed on qualification (1972, p.

Ottersbach (1980, p. 8), and Zillmer (1980, p. 86). 14 See Schultz (1969, p. , p. 310), Wellek (1960, p. 181), and Hiebsch (1961, p. 16). Introduction 9 the development of psychology in the Third Reich also seem common among historians. 15 Hans Peter Bleuel (1968, p. 220), for example, assumes that psychology was decimated as a branch of science, and Hans Mommsen recently claimed that it was practically liquidated. 16 The idea that fascism brought about the total decline of German psychology may stem from the fact that Nazi policies led to the loss of important German-speaking scientists such as Karl Duncker, Adhemar Gelb, David Katz, Kurt Lewin, Wilhelm Peters, Otto Selz, William Stern, Heinz Werner, Max Wertheimer, and later Karl Buhler, as well as Wolfgang Kohler, who left Germany in protest.

Neumann sees monopoly capitalism as the economic basis of the Nazi dictatorship but does not interpret the Nazi state as an instrument of capital. " With these concepts Neumann refers first to Hobbes's Leviathan, which describes domination in a state through law, and then to his Behemouth, in which he describes the lawlessness that obtained during the English civil war. For Neumann the Third Reich was a similarly lawless nonstate, a social form in which the ruling groups directly controlled the rest of the population without the intervention of any sort of rational apparatus of coercion previously identified with the state.
