U.G.: Selbst das „Treiben lassen“ geschieht nicht willentlich. Sie müssen überhaupt nichts tun. Sie sind von nichts getrennt. Das ist alles, used to be ich sage. Sie können sich nicht vom Denken trennen und sagen: „Das sind meine Gedanken.“ Das ist die Täuschung, der Sie aufsitzen und Sie können nicht ohne Illusionen sein. Sie ersetzen eine phantasm immer durch eine andere. Immer.

Frage: Und das akzeptiere ich auch.

U.G.: Sie akzeptieren, dass Sie eine phantasm immer wieder durch die nächste ersetzen; deshalb ist Ihr Wunsch, frei von Täuschung zu sein, ein Ding der Unmöglichkeit. Der Wunsch ist auch eine Täuschung. Warum wollen Sie frei von Illusionen sein? Das ist Ihr Ende. Es ist nicht so, dass ich Sie erschrecken möchte – ich weise nur darauf hin, dass das nicht einfach nur ein fröhlich unbekümmertes Spiel ist. Das sind Sie, Sie, so wie Sie sich kennen – dieses Wissen, das Sie über sich selbst haben, ist dann nicht mehr vorhanden. Es kann nicht mehr vorhanden sein. Wenn es dieses Wissen nicht mehr gibt, dann gibt es auch das Wissen nicht mehr, das Sie über die Welt haben. Es kann nicht mehr vorhanden sein. Es hört nicht einfach so auf. Es wird immer durch eine neue phantasm ersetzt.
Sie wollen kein normaler Mensch sein, sie wollen keine gewöhnliche individual sein. Das ist das eigentliche challenge. Es ist das Schwierigste, gewöhnlich zu sein.

Zerrissenes Bewusstsein: Der Intellektuellendiskurs im by Simone Müller

By Simone Müller

< !doctype html public "-//w3c//dtd html 4.0 transitional//en">

Anfang der 1920er Jahre, ausgelöst durch das Aufkommen einer sozialistischen Bewegung nach der russischen Oktoberrevolution, entstand in Japan ein Diskurs über die sozialpolitische Rolle des Intellektuellen, der sich bis in die 1970er Jahre hineinzog. Angeführt wurde er von marxistisch und humanistisch orientierten Literaturkritikern und Schriftstellern, die sich Fragen nach der sozialen Verantwortung der Literatur und der diesbezüglichen Rolle der Intelligenz stellten. Der japanische Intellektuellenbegriff ist im Rahmen dieses Diskurses vor dem geschichtlichen und gesellschaftspolitischen Kontext sukzessiv neu geformt worden. Er ist Zeugnis einer steten Auseinandersetzung, gespiegelt in differenzierten Begriffen, was once ein Intellektueller sei, und welchen Platz dieser in der Gesellschaft einnehmen solle.
Anhand einer Diskursanalyse repräsentativer Debatten zwischen 1920 und 1970 unter Einbezugnahme von Bourdieus Theorie des literarischen Feldes wird die Entwicklung, die Rolle und die Selbstwahrnehmung des modernen japanischen Intellektuellen in der Zwischen- und Nachkriegszeit des 20. Jahrhunderts gezeichnet und ein Profil des Schriftstellers als Intellektueller definiert.
