Nočna nezgoda

by none

Category: International Business

Zgodba kratkega romana Nočna nezgoda (2003) je na pogled preprosta: fanta na pragu polnoletnosti (ta se je v času dogajanja, sredi šestdesetih let 20. stoletja, v Franciji dosegla pri enaindvajsetih) sredi noči podre avtomobil, ki ga vozi mlada ženska. Za povzročiteljico nezgode se izgubi sled, fant pozna le njeno ime in približen naslov. Po dolgem iskanju po naključju naleti nanjo v nekem lokalu; spoprijateljita se, morda tudi vzljubita … Pripovedovalec se kar naprej vrača v svoje otroštvo in skuša izbrskati pozabljene doživljaje; marsikak občutek iz sedanjosti ga napoti v njegovo nejasno preteklost, nad katero se boči senca redko videnega, na meji dovoljenega živečega očeta. Roman je zelo reprezentativen za opus francoskega nobelovca Patricka Modianoja (1945), saj virtuozno prepleta ključne téme njegovega pisanja, da posamezne niti sestavijo barvito podobo iskanja samega sebe....

John Lockes Empirismus

by none

Category: International Business

Aus dem Vorwort des AutorsDie vorliegende Arbeit habe ich im Rahmen einer Lehrveranstaltung an der Universität Wien 1989 geschrieben und abgegeben. Sie gehörte zu meinen ersten Arbeiten. Ihr Titel lautete “John Lockes Empirismus als mögliches Erkenntnismodell zur Legitimierung seiner politischen Visionen”. Die Grundlage bildete die Intepretation bestimmter Texte, insbesondere “John Locke” in “Empirismus” aus der Reihe “Geschichte der Philosophie in Text und Darstellung”, Reclam Stuttgart 1980. Bezogen habe ich mich natürlich auch auf die Primärliteratur, Sekundärliteratur und meinen damaligen und übrigens auch noch heutigen Lieblings-Klassiker “Geschichte der Philosophie” von Curt Friedlein im Erich Schmidt Verlag, die ich jedem empfehlen kann, der es kurz und knackig mag (allerdings nicht, weil das Lernen schneller geht, sondern weil man schneller zum Lernen kommt – die Arbeit wird einem nicht erspart, sie ist zum Teil der Sinn der Sache).Die Arbeit ist schlicht. John Lockes Empirismus wird vorgestellt und erklärt. Interessant daran ist möglicherweise die Einbettung in den Kontext des Rationalismus und Transzendentalismus. Descartes und Kant werden behandelt. Für Anfänger jedoch, die sich mit der Materie noch nicht beschäftigt haben, ist die die Darstellung wohl zu kompliziert. Ich habe die Arbeit für ein akademisches Publikum geschrieben, deshalb wird einiges Wissen vorausgesetzt. Auf der anderen Seite wäre es genau das, was mich an der Lektüre am meisten reizen würde, wenn ich keine Ahnung davon hätte. Wer also mit einem Lexikon in der Hand, sprich mit Wikipedia, bereit ist, dies und jenes nachzuschlagen und so zu lernen, dass er sich selbst lehrt, wird auch was davon haben. Ein Punkt sei hervorgehoben. Ich wende an einigen Stellen ein argumentum ad hominem an, auch wenn man es wahrscheinlich anders bezeichnen sollte, weil es dabei nicht um die Person geht, sondern um die Lehre. Diese wird gewissermaßen durch den Rückbezug auf die Motivation und die Ziele der sie entwickelnden bzw. vertretenden Person gesehen. Das klingt jetzt allerdings komplizierter als es ist. Worum es geht, ist, dass man nach den Beweggründen fragt, die einen Denker dazu bringen, sich mit einer bestimmten Sache in einer bestimmten Art zu beschäftigen. Worauf will jemand hinaus – warum und wozu? Dabei sollte man vorsichtig sein, denn erstens ist es etwas, das man nie genau wissen kann, und zweitens ist es für die Lehre selbst irrelevant. Aber es macht unter Umständen verständlicher, wenn man es richtig angeht. Denn: Bei der Erklärung einer Theorie ist auch der Rückbezug auf mögliche Motive sinnvoll. Allerdings nicht, um die Theorie zu relativieren oder zu entkräften, sondern um unterschiedliche Gesichtspunkte zu betrachten, neue Perspektiven aufzudecken und so mehr Implikationen mitzudenken. Auf diese Weise können wir ein besseres Verständnis erreichen, einen umfassenderen Überblick geben und einen tieferen Einblick gewähren.Konkret: Ich war davon fasziniert, wie gut Lockes Empirismus zu seiner politischen Philosophie passt. Ich will Erkenntnistheorien nicht politisieren, aber manche Lehren passen besser zu bestimmten politischen Systemen als andere. Es ist auch logisch, denn wenn eine Person in einem bestimmten Bereich eine bestimmte Meinung vertritt, dann wird sie in einem benachbarten Bereich nicht eine andere vertreten, die der ersten zuwiderläuft.Dieser Ansatz wurde für meine späteren Arbeiten bedeutsam, in denen ich eben diesen Zusammenhang bei unterschiedlichen Lehren betrachtet habe....
