Roboter tun das. Ihre Existenz basiert auf dem gesicherten Wissen, mit dem sie gefüttert wurden. Doch wehe, der Roboter wird aus seinem vertrauten Umfeld herausgerissen. Dann ist er hilflos und unfähig, damit zurechtzukommen.
Anders der Mensch: Gerät er in eine solche state of affairs, wird er versuchen, sich das Neue und Unbekannte zu erschließen und sich eine foundation zu schaffen, um zu verstehen.
Die menschliche Wissensbasis ist jedoch zu dürftig, um für alle Lebenssituationen Strategien und Sicherheit zu bieten.
Werner Kinnebrock geht der Frage nach, wie weit wir mit Hilfe von Erfahrung und Wissenschaft in die Erkenntnis von Wahrheiten eindringen können.
Wo ist die Grenze, an der das gesicherte Wissen aufhört und zwangsläufig der Glaube beginnt? Wo bleibt dabei der weltanschaulich-religiöse Glaube? Der dänische Philosoph Søren Kierkegaard sagt: „Der Glaube kann nur im Sprung erreicht werden, der alles natürlich Verstehende hinter sich lässt." Damit ginge wahrer Glaube weit über Wissenschaftsgläubigkeit hinaus.
Klar und fundiert und doch mit der nötigen Offenheit für das Unfassbare nimmt uns der Autor mit auf eine spannende Argumentationsreise.
