Die Frage nach dem guten Leben (German Edition) by Elisabeth Schmid

By Elisabeth Schmid

was once ist ein gutes Leben? was once kann es sein – nicht nur für den Einzelnen, sondern für eine Gesellschaft? An welchen Werten sollen wir uns orientieren? Diese Fragen sind immer wiederkehrende, philosophisch-politische Grundthemen, die besonders in Krisenzeiten auftauchen und sehr kontrovers diskutiert werden.
Die Autorin vergleicht zwei Konzepte, die aus unterschiedlichen kulturellen und ethischen Kontexten stammen. Ein Beispiel für das „moderne“ gute Leben ist der Fähigkeitenansatz von Amartya Sen, der ein möglichst großes Maß an persönlicher Freiheit und Möglichkeiten als oberstes Ziel definiert. Im Gegensatz dazu steht das Leitprinzip der aktuellen Verfassung Ecuadors, das Buen Vivir (span.: „gutes Leben“ oder „gut leben“). Dieses Prinzip basiert auf der Kosmovision der ecuadorianischen Kichwa, das in ihrer Sprache als Sumak Kawsay (kichwa: „Leben in Fülle“) bezeichnet wird. Während Amartya Sens Konzept zur Entwicklung als Freiheit systeminhärente Ungleichheiten und Ungerechtigkeiten nicht durchbrechen kann, liegt das große Verdienst des Buen Vivir in der Aufdeckung von Machtstrukturen und im Beitrag zur Konstruktion einer möglichen anderen Welt, jenseits des herrschenden Eurozentrismus und Kapitalismus.

By Eric Kresse

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2012 im Fachbereich Medien / Kommunikation - Medienethik, observe: 1,0, Universität der Bundeswehr München, Neubiberg (Institut für Theologie und Ethik), Veranstaltung: Medienethik, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: 1. Einleitung
Nach den Anstrengungen eines Arbeitstages ist es heute zur Gewohnheit geworden, abends vor dem Fernseher zu entspannen und sich einen movie anzuschauen. Dies geschieht jedoch meist passiv, indem der Zuschauer die Informationen zwar aufnimmt, aber nicht rational rezipiert, um auf dieser Grundlage zu einer eigenen Interpretation des Spielfilms zu gelangen. Daher bleiben Bedeutungsebene und Botschaft eines motion pictures oft verborgen und unbeachtet. Dabei ist es gerade wichtig, die individuelle Wahrnehmung zu sensibilisieren und somit im Sinne einer Rezeptionskompetenz den Erkenntnisgewinn aus dem veranschaulichten fabric zu steigern. Aus diesem Grunde soll mittels dieser Arbeit der populäre movie „Ritter aus Leidenschaft“ rezipiert werden, um den Mehrgehalt einer bewussten Wahrnehmung und Produktanalyse beispielhaft zu erarbeiten. Dazu muss als Ausgangspunkt zunächst von einer oberflächlichen Darstellung der Handlung nach einmaligem Sehen ausgegangen werden: Ein mittelalterlicher Knappe nimmt eine falsche Identität an, überwindet einzelne Hürden und wird schließlich zum Ritter geschlagen, bevor er seinen Rivalen im Weltmeisterschaftsfinale der Turnierritter bezwingen und die schöne Hofdame bekommen kann.
Die Bearbeitung dieses Themas beginnt mit der Darstellung allgemeiner Informationen und einer folgenden Genreeinteilung, um anschließend mit einer Untersuchung des Narrativen die examine zu fokussieren. Nachdem in diesem Kapitel maßgeblich der Inhalt, die Charaktere und die Heldenreise ausgeführt wurden, folgt zunächst die examine der visuellen und dann der auditiven Ebene, um somit ein Fundament für eine Interpretation zu gewährleisten. Die Arbeit schließt, nach einer medienethischen examine, mit einer Zusammenfassung der erbrachten Erkenntnisse. Dabei wird die Arbeit, neben den grundlegenden der Fachliteratur zu entnehmenden deskriptiven Kenntnissen, vor allem analytisch gestaltet, um zu einem eigenständigen Urteil zu gelangen.
