Download Liebe als Passion am Beispiel "Die Leiden des jungen by Mareike Bachmann PDF

By Mareike Bachmann

Der Fokus dieser Arbeit liegt auf der Sozialgeschichte des beginnenden 18. Jahrhundert. Mithilfe von
Niklas Luhmanns Studien zu Semantik der Liebe soll geklärt werden, ob Goethes Werther ein „Kind seiner Zeit“
war oder ob es sich bei diesem Werk um ein Einzelbeispiel handelt, auf das sich Luhmanns Theorie gerade
nicht anwenden lässt.
Luhmann kombiniert zwei Theorienzusammenhänge. Zum einen soziologische Arbeiten, die sich mit der Überleitung
von traditionellen Gesellschaften in moderne beschäftigen. Zum anderen eine allgemeine Theorie symbolisch
generierter Kommunikationsmedien. Den soziologischen Arbeiten liegt die those zugrunde, dass „der Umbau
des Gesellschaftssystems von stratifikatorischer in funktionale Systemdifferenzierung tief greifende
Veränderungen des Ideengutes der Semantik erzeugt [ ...].“ Mit diesem Umbau erzeuge die Gesellschaft
die Kontinuität ihrer eigenen Reproduktion. Das Ideengut einer traditionellen Gesellschaft kann nach
Luhmann zwar tradiert werden, jedoch ändert sich der Sinn auf dem Weg in eine modere Gesellschaft und
kann so tief greifende Veränderungen in den Sozialstrukturen begleiten.
Der anderer Theoriezusammenhang stammt aus einer allgemeinen Theorie symbolisch generierter
Kommunikationsmedien. Als einen solchen symbolischen Code behandelt Luhmann Liebe. Dieser solle
darüber informieren, wie Kommunikation, obwohl sie unwahrscheinlich scheint, dennoch erfolgreich sein kann.
Historische Studien zur Semantik von Liebe kommen hinzu. Sie basieren zum Größen Teil auf
Romanliteratur des 17. und 18. Jahrhunderts. An ihnen werde so Luhmann, der Bedeutungswandel
von Liebe als symbolisch generiertem Code deutlich. An der Unterschiedlichkeit der Reaktion auf
das gleiche challenge zeige sich ein Sachzusammenhang. Seit dem 17. Jahrhundert sei der Roman selbst
zum lehr- und Orientierungsfaktor in Liebesangelegenheiten geworden.
Luhmann versucht additionally den Code symbolisch generierter Kommunikationsmedien, in diesem Fall Liebe,
historisch anhand von Romanen nachzuweisen, um so den Wandel der Semantik des Ideengutes während
des Wandels des Gesellschaftssystems aufzuzeigen.


1.Genese von Individualität durch persönliche und unpersönliche Beziehungen
