Magisterarbeit aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich Sprachwissenschaft / Sprachforschung (fachübergreifend), Note: 1,0, Universität Bielefeld, 52 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: „Ich bin von allen Dingen durch einen hohlen Raum getrennt, an dessen Begrenzung ich mich nicht einmal dränge.“ Die vorliegende Arbeit untersucht die narratologische, inhaltlich-ideologische, symbolische und subjektphilosophische Funktion von Raumkonstruktionen. Ausgehend von der psychoanalytischen und antropologisch orientierten "Poetik des Raumes" wird ein Kategoriemodell zur Erschließung der Räume für die Existenzproblematik des Protagonisten K. herausgearbeitet. Der Schwerpunkt liegt dabei auf der Evokation von Verlorenheit und permanenter Dissfusionen. In den Beurteilungen wurden insbesondere die gelungende Verknüpfung von existenzphilosophischen Erklärungsversuchen mit psychoanalytischer Hermeneutik und kunstorientierten Reflexionen, sowie die saubere Wissenschaftssprache und die argumentative Schärfe beim kritischem Umgang mit einem breiten, gut ausgesuchten Fundus an Sekundärliteratur gelobt.

Malcolm Gladwell, Bestsellerautor und Star des amerikanischen Buchmarkts, hat die wahren Ursachen des Erfolgs untersucht und darüber ein lehrreiches, faszinierendes Buch geschrieben. Es steckt voller Geschichten und Beispiele, die zeigen, dass auch außergewöhnlicher Erfolg selten etwas mit individuellen Eigenschaften zu tun hat, sondern mit Gegebenheiten, die es dem einen leicht und dem anderen unmöglich machen, erfolgreich zu sein. Die Frage ist nicht, wie jemand ist, sondern woher er kommt: Welche Bedingungen haben diesen Menschen hervorgebracht? Auf seiner anregenden intellektuellen Erkundung der Welt der Überflieger erklärt Gladwell unter anderem das Geheimnis der Softwaremilliardäre, wie man ein herausragender Fußballer wird, warum Asiaten so gut in Mathe sind und was die Beatles zur größten Band aller Zeiten machte.
