Freiheit: Psychobiologische Errungenschaft und by Ludger Tebartz van Elst

By Ludger Tebartz van Elst

Ist Freiheit aus neurowissenschaftlicher Perspektive eine phantasm? In diesem Buch wird gezeigt, dass dies nur dann der Fall ist, wenn Unfreiheit so definiert wird, dass sie entsteht, wenn menschliches Verhalten vom eigenen Körper gesteuert wird.
Dementgegen wird ein positives Verständnis von Freiheit entwickelt als Qualität einer Untergruppe von behavioralen Sequenzen. Sie ist als psychobiologische Komplexleistung höherer Lebewesen kein Phänomen außerhalb der Naturgesetze, sondern Ausdruck körperlicher und damit wesentlich zerebraler Prozesse. Dieser Freiheitsbegriff ist empirischer Untersuchung zugänglich und intestine vereinbar sowohl mit neurobiologischen Forschungsansätzen als auch mit alltäglichen, psychotherapeutischen und juristischen Konzeptualisierungen.

Maler, Mörder und Matronen

Ein Graf ohne Nachkommen, eine Haushälterin, ein Trödler, ein Drogendealer – das sind die Todesopfer dieses ansonsten ruhigen Sommers in Genua.

Doch dann taucht wie eine imaginative and prescient aus der Vergangenheit seine ehemalige Klassenkameradin und Schulschönheit Fiammetta Sforza auf, von den Jahren unberührt wie Dorian grey. Als Restauratorin hatte sie für den verstorbenen Grafen eine seit Generationen im Familienbesitz befindliche Rötelzeichnung untersucht und herausgefunden, dass es sich um ein bis dato unbekanntes Selbstporträt da Vincis handelt. Eine Beute von unschätzbarem Wert …
Das child vor den Bauch geschnallt, macht sich der spindeldürre, baumlange Commissario sofort auf eigene Faust auf die Jagd nach dem verschwundenen Porträt, im ungleichen Wettlauf gegen einen geisterhaften Mörder, karrieregeile Widersacher, die Tücken schöner Frauen und – den Schlafrhythmus seines Sohnes.
