Jenseits von Freiheit und Würde

Author: B. F. Skinner

Publisher: Rowohlt Verlag GmbH

ISBN: 3688117751

Category: Psychology

Page: 222

View: 1134

In seinem höchst beunruhigenden und provokativen Buch hat B. F. Skinner aus Methoden und Resultaten seiner jahrzehntelangen Forschungsarbeit die Summe gezogen und darauf eine Analyse von Zustand und Zukunft der Gesellschaft und des einzelnen Menschen aufgebaut. Die Krise, in der sich die Weltzivilisation befindet, kann nur überwunden werden, wenn das Verhalten des Menschen von Grund auf neu motiviert wird. Die einzige Überlebenschance sieht Skinner in einer radikalen Revision der geheiligten Ideale von Freiheit und Würde. Diese machtvoll wirksamen Wertvorstellungen haben in der Geschichte stets eine wesentliche Rolle gespielt beim Kampf des Menschen gegen Tyrannei, Despotie und andere Formen autoritärer Herrschaft. Obwohl Skinner ihre wichtige historische Funktion durchaus sieht, gibt er den nahezu religiös verehrten Dogmen von Freiheit und Würde die Hauptschuld an dem gefährlichen Götzenkult, in welchem mittlerweile der Idee vom autonomen Menschen gehuldigt wird. Freiheit und Würde sind Tabus, ihre kritiklose Verinnerlichung hat schwerwiegende Folgen, vor allem weil sie uns an der hergebrachten Bestrafungsethik festhalten lassen und so die Entwicklung einer effektiveren kulturellen Praxis vereiteln.

Pigeon English

Author: Stephen Kelman

Publisher: ebook Berlin Verlag

ISBN: 3827074347

Stephen Kelmans furioser Debütroman beginnt, wo Politik und Medien die Worte versagen. Er erzählt von Menschen, die sich von der Gesellschaft im Stich gelassen fühlen und dies nicht länger hinnehmen wollen. Auch Harry Opoku ist einer von denen im Abseits. Wenn Harry mit seiner Taube spricht, wenn er der Schnellste seiner Klasse ist und immer neue Farben im Haribo-Sortiment entdeckt, dann scheint alles ganz harmlos. Dann wird ein Nachbarsjunge auf offener Straße erstochen, und keinen kümmert's. Harry aber beginnt seine abstrusen Ermittlungen. Eine Geschichte voll unschuldiger Erfahrung, die der rauen Realität alles entgegenhält. »Pigeon English ist ein durch und durch aufklärerisches Buch - ohne zu moralisieren. Es geht einem zu Herzen - ohne sich in Kitsch und Pathos zu verlieren. Es hilft zu verstehen, wo die meisten Debatten kläglich versagen. Nicht zuletzt aber und vor allem ist dies ein wunderbarer Roman.« NZZ
