Flüchtige Zeiten

Leben in der Ungewissheit

Author: Zygmunt Bauman

Publisher: Hamburger Edition HIS

ISBN: 3868545697

Category: Social Science

Page: 168

View: 418

Wir leben in einer Welt des Übergangs von der "festen" zur "flüssigen" Moderne. Unsicherheit und Ungewissheit prägen den Alltag vieler Menschen, denen ohne stabile gesellschaftliche Formen und Institutionen ein Bezugsrahmen sowohl für ihr Handeln als auch für langfristige Lebenspläne fehlt und die sich gezwungen sehen, ihr Leben aus einer endlosen Abfolge von kurzfristigen Projekten und Episoden zusammenzuflicken. Konzepte wie "Karriere" oder "Fortschritt" können nur noch von wenigen aktiv verfolgt werden, und "in Sicherheit zu leben" bedeutet schon heute vielerorts - vorausgesetzt, man kann es sich leisten -, bewacht zu werden und abgeschottet zu sein von den Wirren der globalen Megacitys, von Armut und dem "menschlichen Abfall". Der renommierte Soziologe Zygmunt Bauman erkundet in diesem Band die endemische Unsicherheit, die unser heutiges Leben formt. In "flüchtigen Zeiten" wird dem Individuum ein sehr hohes Maß an Flexibilität und Anpassungsfähigkeit abverlangt und die permanente Bereitschaft, Taktiken zu ändern, Verpflichtungen und Loyalitäten ohne Bedauern fallenzulassen und Gelegenheiten je nach kurzfristiger Verfügbarkeit zu ergreifen. Leben bedeutet mit der Ungewissheit umzugehen.

Unterhaltend und fundiert: Ein Pageturner über die Hirnforschung Die Hirnforschung macht rasante Fortschritte, aber nur selten treten wir einen Schritt zurück und fragen uns, was es heißt, ein Lebewesen und Mensch zu sein. Der renommierte Neurowissenschaftler David Eagleman nimmt uns mit auf die Reise durch das Gewirr aus Milliarden von Hirnzellen und Billionen von Synapsen – und zu uns selbst. Das sonderbare Rechengewebe in unserem Schädel ist der Apparat, mit dem wir uns in der Welt orientieren, Entscheidungen treffen und Vorstellungen entwickeln. Seine unendlich vielen Zellen bringen unser Bewusstsein und unsere Träume hervor. In diesem Buch baut Bestsellerautor David Eagleman eine Brücke zwischen der Hirnforschung und uns, den Besitzern eines Gehirns. Er hilft uns, uns selbst zu verstehen. Denn ein besseres Verständnis unseres inneren Kosmos wirft auch ein neues Licht auf unsere persönlichen Beziehungen und unser gesellschaftliches Zusammenleben: wie wir unser Leben lenken, warum wir lieben, was wir für wahr halten, wie wir unsere Kinder erziehen, wie wir unsere Gesellschaftspolitik verbessern und wie wir den menschlichen Körper auf die kommenden Jahrhunderte vorbereiten können.
