Halbe Wahrheiten: Vom seltsamen Eigenleben unserer by Douwe Draaisma,Verena Kiefer

By Douwe Draaisma,Verena Kiefer

So warfare das nicht! Wie unsere Erinnerung uns belügt.
»Was in deiner Jugend geschah, ist häufig das Ergebnis dessen, wie dein späteres Leben verlaufen ist.«
Sie glauben, die Vergangenheit sei die Summe Ihrer Erinnerungen? – Weit gefehlt! In _Halbe Wahrheiten. Vom seltsamen Eigenleben unserer Erinnerung_ spürt Douwe Draaisma den methods und Fallen nach, mit denen wir uns selbst täuschen.

Die meisten von uns meinen noch genau zu wissen, wo sie waren und used to be sie gerade taten, als sie von Sept. 11, vom Tod John F. Kennedys oder girl Dianas erfuhren. Selten entsprechen diese »Blitzlichterinnerungen« an Schockmomente jedoch der Wahrheit. Sie haben sich erst mit der Zeit geformt.

Erinnerungen werden durch spätere Ereignisse um- und überschrieben. Jemand, der erfährt, dass er ein Kuckuckskind ist, beginnt, seine Familie in völlig neuem Licht zu sehen. Dieselben Ereignisse der Vergangenheit erhalten plötzlich eine andere Bedeutung. Lange Vergessenes taucht wie aus dem Nichts auf und fügt sich zu einem neuen Bild.

Draaisma zeigt, dass Erinnerungen höchstens Versionen der Vergangenheit bieten und folglich nur »halbe Wahrheiten« sein können. Mit Blick auf eine »Vergessenspille«, wie sie beispielsweise in der Traumatherapie erforscht wird, fragt er auch nach der Rolle der Erinnerung für unsere Identität. Angenommen, unsere Erinnerungen sind identitätsstiftend: was once geschieht, wenn sich diese Erinnerungen verändern oder sogar vergessen werden?
