Download E-books Ein Schritt zurück in die Zukunft: Was wir aus der Geschichte lernen können PDF

By Loel Zwecker

Eine originelle Zeitreise durch die Weltgeschichte

Loel Zwecker begibt sich auf die Suche nach historischen Antworten auf aktuelle Fragen. Dabei werden vor allem fünf große Themenkomplexe in den Blick genommen, die das Leben der Menschen in der griechischen Antike genauso bestimmt haben wie das unsrige: Ehe und Partnerschaft, Arbeit, Bildung und Erziehung, game und – ach ja, die leidigen Steuern.

Nehmen wir an, wir hätten eine Zeitmaschine, die es uns ermöglichte, mit Menschen vorangegangener Jahrhunderte ins Gespräch zu kommen. Vermutlich würden sowohl die hart schuftende mittelalterliche Bäuerin als auch die Fürstentochter, die aus dynastischen Gründen vermählt werden soll, relativ verständnislos reagieren, wenn wir ihnen davon erzählten, dass Ehepartner im 21. Jahrhundert sich gegenseitig nicht nur die große Liebe sein müssen, sondern auch Seelenverwandte und stets feurige Liebhaber. Der römische Edelmann wiederum hätte wohl nur einen mitleidigen Blick für uns, wenn wir ihm von unseren vollgepackten Arbeitstagen und Terminkalendern berichteten. Loel Zwecker schaut zurück, um die Gegenwart besser zu verstehen. Dabei geht es nicht darum, die Vergangenheit zu verklären, sondern sich bewusst zu machen, woher Ideen kommen, die uns bis heute prägen, und wie sich Vorstellungen, die wir als selbstverständlich betrachten, im Lauf der Zeit gewandelt haben.
