Examensarbeit aus dem Jahr 2014 im Fachbereich Ethik, observe: 2,0, , Sprache: Deutsch, summary: was once geschieht mit uns, wenn wir sterben? Gibt es ein Leben nach dem Tod? Diese philosophischen Fragen beschäftigen die Menschen aller Kulturkreise wohl seitdem sie über vernunftbegabtes Denken verfügen und stehen in engem Zusammenhang zu der alten Sinnfrage des menschlichen Daseins. Das Thema Tod übt selbst im modernen Zeitalter, das von einer Verwissenschaftlichung des Denkens zunehmend geprägt ist, noch immer eine rätselhafte und morbide Faszination auf den Menschen aus. Nicht selten tauchen die eingangs gestellten Fragen auch unter jugendlichen Schülern im Ethikunterricht auf - besonders vor dem Hintergrund des vom Thüringer Lehrplan vorgesehenen Themas Sterben und Tod in Klassenstufe nine. Aufgrund dessen entschloss ich mich, eine projekthafte Unterrichtsreihe in die Thematik Sterben und Tod einzubetten, die sich besonders auf selbstständiges, kooperatives und produktionsorientiertes Arbeiten konzentrieren und einen Versuch, offene Fragen zu beantworten, darstellen sollte.
