Download PDF by Elisabeth Wehling: Politisches Framing: Wie eine Nation sich ihr Denken

By Elisabeth Wehling

Politisches Denken ist bewusst, rational und objektiv - diese althergebrachte Vorstellung geistert bis heute über die Flure von Parteizentralen und Medienredaktionen und durch die Köpfe vieler Bürger. Doch die Kognitionsforschung hat die "klassische Vernunft" längst zu Grabe getragen. Nicht Fakten bedingen unsere Meinungen, sondern Frames. Sie ziehen im Gehirn die Strippen und entscheiden, ob Informationen als wichtig erkannt oder kognitiv unter den Teppich gekehrt werden. Frames sind immer ideologisch selektiv, und sie werden über Sprache aktiviert und gefestigt - unsere öffentlichen Debatten wirken wie ein synaptischer Superkleber, der Ideen miteinander vernetzen kann, und zwar dauerhaft. In der Kognitionsforschung ist guy sich daher schon lange einig: Sprache ist Politik. Höchste Zeit additionally, unsere Naivität gegenüber der Macht politischer Diskurse abzulegen. Dieses Buch legt dazu den Grundstein. In einfacher Sprache deckt es zunächst auf, wie Sprache sich auf unser Denken, unsere Wahrnehmung der Welt und unser Handeln auswirkt. Es zeigt, wo die Wirkkraft mentaler Mechanismen wie Frames und Metaphern herrührt, und macht deutlich, wieso es für gesunde demokratische Diskurse unabdingbar ist, die Bewertungen von Gesellschaft und Politik durch vorherrschende Frames mit eigenen Wertvorstellungen abzugleichen - und für eine authentische Vermittlung der eigenen Weltsicht zu sorgen. Diesen Grundlagen folgt eine examine der augenfälligsten Frames unserer deutschsprachigen Debatten über Steuern, Sozialstaat, Gesellschaft, Sozialleistungen, Arbeit, Abtreibung, Islam, Terrorismus, Zuwanderung, Flüchtlingspolitik und Umwelt.
