Der Double Bind: Gregory Batesons Beiträge zur by Katja Rommel

By Katja Rommel

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2009 im Fachbereich Psychologie - Klinische u. Gesundheitspsychologie, Psychopathologie, word: 1,0, Hochschule Fresenius Idstein, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Unter den zahlreichen Beiträgen, die der englische Wissenschaftler Gregory BATESON (1904 - 1980) zu den Humanwissenschaften leistete, stehen seine Forschungen zu Kommunikationspsychologie und klinischer Psychologie in vorderster Linie. Zu seinen bedeutendsten Arbeiten zählen hierbei die ab 1952 entstandenen Veröffentlichungen zum Doub-le-Bind in der menschlichen und tierischen Kommunikation. Einen Ausgangspunkt bei der Erforschung dieses Phänomens bildeten die im sozialen Spiel von Tieren auftretenden Paradoxien, die BATESON mithilfe der mathematischen Theorie logischer Typen von WHITEHEAD & RUSSELL beschrieb.

Bei den Double-Binds handelt es sich um widersprüchliche und in ihrer Widersprüchlich-keit schwer zu durchschauende Aussagen über die Beziehung zwischen einem Binder und einem Opfer. Für das Opfer ist es schwierig, die verschiedenen Ebenen einer Nachricht des Binders zu unterscheiden. Es muss dazu bestimmte Verhaltensweisen anwen-den, die im schlimmsten - dem pathologischen - Fall dem klinischen Erscheinungsbild schizophrener Symptomatik entsprechen. Es gehört zum Wesen des Double-Bind, dass er nicht von den in ihm Befangenen, sondern nur von außen, etwa durch einen Therapeuten, aufgehoben werden kann. Da Double-Binds nicht zwangsläufig zu pathologischem Verhalten führen müssen, können sie gezielt, im Sinne einer paradoxen oder Symptomverschreibung, als therapeutisches Mittel eingesetzt werden. Obwohl sie die Grundlage zu zahlreichen weiterführenden Forschungen bildet, konnte die Double-Bind-Theorie in kontrollierten Studien nicht empirisch bestätigt werden.

Il Diavolo zoppo e il suo Compare: Talleyrand e Fouché o la by Alessandra Necci

By Alessandra Necci

Due celebri uomini politici, Charles-Maurice de Talleyrand-Périgord e Joseph Fouché, vissuti a cavallo fra il '700 e '800 in Francia. Cresciuti entrambi in seno alla Chiesa, che hanno poi rinnegato, Ministro degli Esteri del Direttorio, di Napoleone e della Restaurazione l'uno, Ministro della Polizia l'altro, nemici quindi complici a seconda delle convenienze, sono divenuti il paradigma stesso dell'opportunismo politico, tanto da essere soprannominati "banderuole". In realtà, Talleyrand e Fouché sono molto più di questo. Protagonisti di un'epoca straordinaria, quella fra Ancien Régime e Restaurazione, nella quale si è costruita l. a. Francia e anche l'Europa moderna, sono riusciti a sopravvivere al crollo della monarchia, alla Rivoluzione, al Terrore, al Direttorio, all'Impero, alla Restaurazione, rivestendo quasi sempre ruoli di primissimo grado. Dichiaratamente infedeli ai regimi e agli uomini, hanno cercato di essere, soprattutto nel caso di Talleyrand, fedeli alla Francia. Intorno a loro, dietro di loro, c'è tutto un mondo che si muove e cambia, in una fase tragica e travagliata, densa di genio e di grandezza ma anche di drammi e atrocità. Freddi e sofisticati tessitori di strategie e intrighi, sono stati determinanti according to some distance cadere il loro signore, Napoleone Bonaparte, ma anche in step with restituire alla Francia un ruolo centrale nell'Europa della Restaurazione. Traditori? Certo; ma in questa storia, tutti tradiscono tutti, a volte con qualche giustificazione, altre senza: in keeping with il potere o il denaro, in step with sopravvivere, in line with salvarsi, in line with vendicarsi, in step with il gusto di farlo. Tanto da a long way pensare che l'umanità si divida in due categorie, i traditori e i traditi.
