Aber was once w?re, wenn unser Gehirn tats?chlich alles so aufnehmen w?rde wie der N?rnberger Trichter, wenn auch aller Unsinn, den wir h?ren, gelernt w?rde? was once w?re, wenn wir Fremdsprachen im hohen regulate so leicht lernen w?rden, wie wir als Kinder die Muttersprache lernen? Und warum ist es gar nicht zu bewerkstelligen, Lernen aus dem Leben zu verbannen? Und wenn Lernen unvermeidlich ist, gibt es dann so etwas wie eine Gebrauchsanleitung zur Lernmaschine in unserem Kopf? Spitzer's Buch kann als Ansatz dazu gelesen werden.
