  • Download Die Rolle der Rhetorik im Rahmen der Artes Liberales (German by Dominic Hand PDF

    By Dominic Hand

    Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2005 im Fachbereich Rhetorik / Phonetik / Sprechwissenschaft, word: 1,7, Eberhard-Karls-Universität Tübingen (Seminar für Allgemeine Rhetorik), Veranstaltung: Rhetorik und Lernen, 6 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Hinter der Aufgabenstellung für diese Arbeit „Die Rolle der Rhetorik im Rahmen der Artes liberales“ verbirgt sich ein sehr weitläufiges, teilweise unerforschtes und schwer greifbares Themengebiet.
    Bereits Uta Lindgren, die auch den Artikel über die „Artes liberales“ im Tübinger Rhetoriklexikon verfasste, spricht im Vorwort ihres Buches „Die Artes Liberales in Antike und Mittelalter“ von „[…] Skrupel, die einen im Angesicht eines so gigantischen Themas befallen […]“ können. Doch ebenso wie bei Lindgren, soll auch in dieser Arbeit durch sinnvolle Ein- wie Abgrenzung des Stoffes eine wissenschaftliche Untersuchung möglich gemacht werden, anstatt „[...] ein Klagelied anzustimmen, zumal wenn guy ohnehin weder zu dichten noch zu singen vermag.“
    So ist in der aktuellen Bildungsdebatte einzugestehen, dass dieses Thema nicht plötzlich aus dem Nichts auftauchte, sondern anscheinend Erkenntnisse in Vergessenheit gerieten, die unserer modernen Gesellschaft aus der Antike hätten vorliegen können. Genau diese Gegebenheit hat das besondere Interesse an dieser Hausarbeit geweckt. Bevor guy sich der Aufgabenstellung widmen kann, welche Rolle die Rhetorik im Rahmen der „Artes liberales“ spielt, ist es sinnvoll in Punkt 2 zunächst eine Klärung des Begriffes unter Berücksichtigung des terminologischen wie mythologischen Hintergrundes vorzunehmen. Ist das Wesen dieser geklärt, stellt sich nun die Frage: „Wie viele und welche Fächer umfasste dieser Wissenschaftskanon gewöhnlicherweise und wie wurden diese eingeteilt?“
    Hierauf soll Punkt three „Die Fächereinteilung der Artes liberales“ eine Antwort geben. Schon zum dortigen Zeitpunkt der Arbeit wird eine Eingrenzung des Stoffgebietes auf die „gewöhnliche“ Darstellung der „Artes liberales“ erfolgen müssen. Denn die vollständige und somit weitläufige Berücksichtigung historischer Entwicklungsaspekte hätte den geforderten Umfang dieser Hausarbeit bei weitem überstiegen.
    Im vierten Punkt wird die Frage geklärt werden, welche Rolle die Rhetorik im Rahmen der „Artes liberales“ im lateinischen Mittelalter gespielt hat. In der Schlussbemerkung wird nochmals Stellung bezogen zu der in der Einleitung anklingenden Problematik der aktuellen Bildungspolitik und der Rolle der „Artes liberales“ hierbei

The racial background of U.S. citizenship is a source for inventing modern methods of talking approximately race.
