Come nasce il soggetto moderno capace di rappresentazione di sé in prima personality? Possiamo farne a meno senza perdere i fondamenti di una vita associata basata sul reciproco riconoscimento e sulla responsabilità di ciascuno?

Download Deutschland auf dem Weg in die Anstalt: Wie wir uns by Burkhard Voß,Wolfgang Clement PDF

By Burkhard Voß,Wolfgang Clement

Partnerschaften, in denen die Beziehung ständig thematisiert wird, sind erfahrungsgemäß die schlechtesten. Dabei ist Reflexivität nicht grundsätzlich schlecht. Doch wird sie in unserer Gesellschaft maßlos übertrieben. Eine uferlose Reflexivkultur ist entstanden. Ergebnis sind überdrehte Zeitgenossen, die mit ständigem Psychologisieren und Problematisieren nicht nur nervtötend sind, sondern auch wichtige Entscheidungen blockieren. Ob im Privaten oder in der Politik: Eigene Befindlichkeit geht vor Gemeinwohl, Subjektives sticht Tatsachen, Wohlfühl-Diktat schränkt individuelle Freiheit ein.
Burkhard Voß, Arzt für Neurologie und Psychiatrie, zeigt, wie die Gesellschaft systematisch erst durchpsychologisiert, dann psychopathologisiert wird. Nährboden für diese ungesunde Entwicklung sieht er historisch in Psychoanalyse, postmoderner Philosophie und Gender-Mainstreaming. Leitend sind die Mythen der Reflexivkultur: "Alle Menschen sind gleich", "Wir müssen achtsam sein" oder "Wir müssen wertschätzend miteinander umgehen". Reflexivkultur ist für Voß die kultische Verehrung reflexiven Denkens, das die Aufmerksamkeit von der Umwelt aufs eigene Selbst lenkt. Im Übermaß auf selbstverständliche Lebensprozesse angewandt, wirkt reflexives Bewusstsein zersetzend. Natürliches und Selbstverständliches wird zu Grabe getragen. Künstliche Probleme sprießen hervor. Und den Bürgern werden gebetsmühlenartig Partialsichtweisen aufgedrängt, die als herrschende Meinung ausgegeben werden, aber kritischer Überprüfung nicht standhalten - eine reale Gefahr für Demokratie und Freiheit. Voß ruft uns deshalb zu: Schluss mit der Therapiegesellschaft! Nehmt Euch selbst nicht mehr so wichtig. Denn eine Gesellschaft, in der sich jeder dauersensibel seine Privatwirklichkeit zurechtzimmert und immer mehr Gruppen nicht mehr miteinander reden können, ist in einer Sackgasse gelandet. Jenseits der Reflexivkultur wird es wieder um Projekte und Ideen gehen und nicht darum, wer used to be wann gesagt und wie gemeint hat.
