Warum wir Geschichten erzählen

In einem interessanten Beitrag auf TED stellt Yuval Noah Harari eine für Geschichtenerzähler charmante These auf: die Menschheit sei als Art vor allem deshalb so erfolgreich, weil sie die Fähigkeit entwickelt habe, Geschichten zu erzählen.

Zusammengefasst lautet das Argument: Was Menschen im Vergleich mit anderen Arten auszeichnet, ist ihre Fähigkeit, in großen Gruppen zusammenzuarbeiten. Um eine große Gruppe von Individuen dazu zu bringen, ein gemeinsames Ziel zu verfolgen, braucht es eine fiktionale Geschichte, an die alle glauben: Religionen, Nationen, Geld oder – Menschenrechte.

Die großen Kulturleistungen der Menschheit gehen für Yuval Noah Harari damit grundsätzlich auf die Fähigkeit des Geschichtenerzählens zurück.

Zugegeben: für diese Fähigkeit braucht es auch noch Kleinigkeiten wie ein hoch entwickeltes Selbst-Bewusstsein und Sprache. Beides reicht aber für sich nicht dafür aus, sich die Welt untertan zu machen. Dafür braucht es vielleicht wirklich den einigenden Glauben an eine fiktionale Geschichte.

  1. You need to participate in a contest for probably the greatest blogs on the web. I will recommend this website!

  2. Cred ca singurul lucru care ar trebui (desi eu sunt impotriva faptului ca ar trebui sa trebuiasca ceva), ar fi sa lasi lucrurile sa decurga in mod firesc si natural fara vreo fortare care, vorba ta, sa distorsioneze realitatea si sa o transforme intr-o iluzie.

  3. Samoin minäkin ymmärsin. Hienoista rivienvälihymyilyä yhdenkaltaisuuden paljastuttua. Ja ovathan vl-liikkeen 70-luvun vaikeudet ainakin täällä taatusti kaikkien tiedossa, ei niitä tarvitse joka tilanteessa erikseen kuvailla. Ainakin minulle riitti tässä yhteydessä viittaus. Kirjoitus oli kutkuttava.Myös Ritun kommentti kosketti.- Anni –

  4. Hej Sanne! Jeg er en pige på 17 år, som er 1.62 cm høj og vejer 75 kg, jeg vil super gerne af med mindst 10 kilo! er så træt af at være overvægtig, vil rigtig godt følge din kur, men hvor kan man købe de linser henne, har ikke rigtig hørt om dem før? og de bønner og linser, hvordan skal de laves?? Tak på forhånd

  5. Ahora si, y no veo problema con eso, porque está en el marco del tratamiento a personas, por tanto tienen derecho a trabajar, a vivir en una casa o departamento, etc. Sin embargo esto no les da derecho a querer adoptar a un niño o exigir que se validen legalmente uniones entre personas el mismo sexo… estoy de acuerdo con el apoyo que SLC les da como humanos, sean hombres o mujeres.

  6. El problema no sólo reside en que falsean la historia del Reino de León, sino que también se falsea la historia del Reino de Castilla.Es una pena (y me da coraje) que en época de crisis se malgaste el dinero en mostrar falsedades y mentiras.Esto conlleva que al final la verdad se distorsione, y las futuras generaciones no reciban la educación que deben recibir.Es una pena…

  7. Really trustworthy blog. Please keep updating with great posts like this one. I have booked marked your site and am about to email itto a few friends of mine that I know would enjoy reading..

  8. It is my understanding that it had to do with a boycott and he felt Curtis was needed. Big Bill knew when and where to forgive, and that generally benefited him in some way, but he was a nice guy. You won’t hear much negative talk of him here. Without him, stock car racing might well have remained in the dark ages. Agree or disagree, it did not.

  9. Koselig med besøk, særlig når det er bursdag! Gratulere så mye med dagen!Flotte gaver! Slike kopper med strikkemønster har jeg ikke sett før!

  10. GREAT TUTORIAL!! Next issue: Opinion really After importing into XSI (whether it’s the original from the original Daz FBX or the Daz_10k) do you recommend building all the controls for the imported rig or …. trashing the imported rig (keeping the mesh only) then using xsi’s biped rig guide which already comes with controls. Appreciate your thoughts

  11. Also definitely Killer Mike, that is probably in my Top 5 for this year. That and Book of David are my favorites from this list. The rest i kind of enjoyed but understood why they’re being, in general, slept on.

  14. or a Whitney. They work hard at UTA and have always been great to deal with in my opinion. As exhibited in Laurel Canyon and a few others KB has a depth of talent as yet fully realized or utilized. Here’s to her finding her voice and success in this next phase!

  15. La verdad, no se puede añadir más a las verdades de tu entrada y a la de los comentarios. Si acaso, satisfacernos al comprobar que somos muchos quienes odiamos este tipo de prácticas, y que quizás en un futuro más o menos cercano este mal llamado arte (de crimen lo tildaría yo) desaparezca.Al respecto, quizás te apetezca leer el último relato que he colgado en mi blog Tierra de Bardos. Espero tus comentarios.

  16. “Os torcedores são parte fundamental deste “outro futebol”, talvez o mais importante. Mas eu me concentrei nos torcedores genuínos, não nos barrabravas. Por torcedor genuíno me refiro àquela pessoa que tenha uma oficina de pintura e dá alguns litros de tinta para que o pessoal possa pintar as arquibancadas…”Grande abordagem essa, não tem que dar dofo pros barrabravas. Uma aula pra quem acha que a galera do APOIO INCONDICIONAL é o verdadeiro torcedor.

  20. as long as the elites keep forking out unemployment insurance. And keep the pensions from collapsing the slave american ex work force will keep being complacenet.I really believe the main game was to keep the pensions propped up. If the elites woke up the complacent bootlicking pensioners that might really get a real revolutuion started. So the elites keep propping up the pensions in the usa with all the fake fiat fed loans they give thier bankster buddies.

  21. Hallo, aus Pietätsgründen enthalte ich mich lieber der Diskussion um dieses Thema, nur eine Frage habe ich:Gerät die Story um Kate Middleton und der toten Frau deswegen jetzt in Vergessenheit???Denkt mal drüber nach

  22. There’s always multipass rendering too. While it may add to your initial render time it can help immensely working in post, and can even save you from having to go back into 3D. Blurry reflections? Just render a pass and blur them in post. Just wish object buffers had premultiplied alphas :/ that’s really my one complaint with multipass, besides the inability to render a single pass at a time.

  23. congratz giggs,bars r sick, flows to deep, just need to start making tracks mor often, would be bigger if he promoted himself all ova da place,he got so many haters but they dnt know about his bars, listen and u will see

  32. Må bare smette inn med det fabelaktige ordet "brev" her, for det kan da på mirakuløst vis bli "brever" i flertall på bokmål, om man da har den slags tilbøyeligheter. Det er bare én av mange, mange herlige ting man kan lære seg om man hører for mye på Lillebjørn Nilsen. Tenker det var deilig å høre, jeg!

  33. … "It is a dirty affair but it is still clean, manageble and preferable in comparison to a younger, bolder, more ruthless alternative."An automobile backfire can start a conflagration that destroys thousands of acres of timber, homes, and valuable infrastructure.It takes days, a possible loss of life, and millions of dollars of resources to contain, and finally stamp out what a small backfire ignited. Fox News is no guarantee that the fire won't come, and may be the backfire that ignites it.

  34. My girl friend is driving me fucking crazy she had been being so fucking dramatic about everything for no reason and claims i talk to her bad now and im a horrible person because i cannot spend the whole day talking to her on the phone and i have to work god put a bullet threw my head

  36. Those curtains, with the light streaming through, are positively psychedelic! Very fitting for your hippie palace for the queen of thrift. I'm glad I'm not the only one who appreciates using an antique iron. I don't know how people use those flimsy plastic things nowadays 🙂 I have a 1940s iron and a back-up 50s one for when the 40s one dies (although I've been using if for 30 years!)

  37. siempre me ha llamado la atencion como viviis el 1 noviembre en mexico… es muy curioso (para quien no sea autoctono de allí claro)P.d.

  38. Sarah House – This was a beautiful event. Love the photograpers work. I always like the events that B & A Warehouse does, I hope to use them for my daughters wedding. Congratulations.

  39. …men jag hÃ¥ller inte helt med dig om rubriken “idioter ska inte skyddas av staten” – jo, det ska dom, men dÃ¥ handlar det om LPT, lagen om psykiatrisk tvÃ¥ngsvÃ¥rd, där idioterna skyddas för sin egen skull samtidigt som samhället skyddas frÃ¥n dom.

  40. Completamente OT: più di preoccuparci di un satellite che cade sulla Terra, dovremmo concentrarci sulla del giorno per noi fisici :-). Ovviamente sono il primo a dire di evitare facili sensazionalismi, però è anche vero che questi scienziati ci lavorano sopra da anni a questo esperimento ed è difficile che diano una notizia di questo tenore senza cognizione di causa. Staremo a vedere.

  41. Whoever this poor dog belongs to doesn’t deserve to have him!! I agree with the dr it is bull that no one can take them out at home. That makes me so angry. The dr. was even going to show them how to remove the worms and why didn’t someone stop the dog from eating them? Not to mention the fact that the dog was so incredibly thin! Guess I got just a little upset about this.

  42. Im not going to call anyone a hater but Bey had her baby. I do not know why people keep saying the baby bump was fake. I dont have kids but im sure alot of you chicks have more than one two or three babies so worry about your kids and stop worrying about a celebrity because we all know Blue Ivy eats well.

  43. Oh gosh am I glad to hear you say you need the CBC to be relevant. I need ALL our Black orgs and reps to get it together and start to represent Black Americans of 2009, not those from 1965.The CBC has been far to obstinate and it’s like they don’t read the news or something. They don’t get it — and that’s a shame.

  44. Näytteistä (olen itse erään kosmetiikan maahantuojan palveluksessa):me saamme päivittäin lukuisia ilmaisnäytepyyntöjä.Kun aikoinaan lähetimme niitä pyytäjille, olimme hukkua pyyntöihin!Vaikutti siltä,että sana kiiri: „tuolta saa“…Liikkeellä on myös liki ammattimaisia näytteiden kerääjiä…Ymmärtäkää please että näyte maksaa ja siihen liittyvät pakkaus-postitustyö+-materiaalit maksavat, paljon.Siksi saatte maahantuojilta neuvon kääntyjä jälleenmyyjien puoleen.Heillä on tietoa tuotteista, testereitä, ja usein myös näytteitä.Pienen maahantuojan resurssit – henkilökunta, aika, raha- ovat pienet.

  45. Honteux !!! Les gens qui rédigent,valident ou apprécient ce genre d’article doivent vraiment vivre dans une bulle microcosmique !!!??? La vie n’est pas la télé et la télé n’est pas la vie…Être redirigé ici via le flux rss du monde c’est lamentable

  46. Way cool. I know a family who went on a Disney cruise through Make-A-Wish and had a great time. Their daughter is profoundly handicapped and uses a wheelchair, but everything was taken care of and went smoothly for them. I hope that, whatever Tori winds up choosing for her magic, you all have a great time too.

  50. I love this post. It helped me realize that the big quilt I just made for a friend — for which she is so grateful — is just as awesome as the ones I labor over for weeks. Hell I like this one better anyways, because I like quick. I like finishing quilts. I like petting nice finished quilts. I hate the mess that I make while piecing and quilting, but love love love the final product. Now I just need to make more for me to use.

  51. I got the French, Language Arts award and History Award (and the Pride award) after I finished Grade 8. So much people hate French, which is ridiculous since French is awesome, I also got all 99s in the three categories in French.

  53. The reason why anakin became mostly robotic was not because he was burned and had his arms/legs cut off it is because he thought he could kill chuck, he tried to stab chuck with his light saber but to anakins suprise the lightsaber could not pierce threw chucks rock hard abs. So chuck knew he would need him so he only roundhouse kicked him enought to knock off his arms and legs and burn him a litte bit.

  55. What a wonderful giveaway – it always amazes me when lovely items like this are not purchased! I love them both – your choice – and if I am the lucky duck, the skirt will be given to my daughter. She is lovely and petite and the busy mother of two kiddos under five who too rarely treats herself.

  56. I have been exploring for a little bit for any high quality articles or blog posts on this kind of area . Exploring in Yahoo I at last stumbled upon this website. Reading this information So i am happy to convey that I have a very good uncanny feeling I discovered just what I needed. I most certainly will make certain to do not forget this web site and give it a look regularly.

  57. Was it just the chart quality which made this so difficult to stitch? I’ve got it in my list of 11 for this year. But it doesn’t feel quite right starting a Christmas one in Spring! I ought to do a square a month or it’ll never get finished this year.Looking forward to seeing your’s progress.
