Die Philosophie des Kletterns (Die Philosophie des Sports) by Stephen E. Schmid,Peter Reichenbach

By Stephen E. Schmid,Peter Reichenbach

Warum klettern, wenn guy auch abstürzen kann? Wie wurde aus dem Klettern eigentlich ein recreation? Und was once hat das Erklimmen eines Berges mit Individualität zu tun? Ist Solo-Klettern Wahnsinn oder moralisch vertretbar? used to be kann guy vom Scheitern am Berg lernen? Und ist es ethisch richtig, Haken in den Fels zu schlagen? Wie sieht es überhaupt mit dem Naturschutz aus? Und warum macht Klettern so frei und so glücklich?

In Die Philosophie des Kletterns erzählen internationale Autoren aus verschiedenen Disziplinen - Philosophieprofessoren, Journalisten, Kletterprofis - kenntnisreich von den Abenteuern, die zwischen Auf- und Abstieg liegen, und was once guy aus ihnen lernen kann. Seit der Klettersport vor genau one hundred fifty Jahren im sächsischen Elbsandsteingebirge erfunden wurde, steigt die Zahl derjenigen, die sich auf die Gefahren des Kletterns einlassen, immer weiter.

Neben der Faszination fürs Risiko spielt dabei aber auch das Streben nach Erkenntnis eine große Rolle. Das Klettern kann uns verändern, es kann unsere Möglichkeiten erweitern, es kann unseren Charakter schulen, es vermittelt uns Freundschaften - und kann sogar dazu beitragen, ein glückliches Leben zu führen. Davon erzählt dieses Buch.

Risikofaktorenmodell (German Edition) by Daniel Jäger

By Daniel Jäger

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2005 im Fachbereich activity - Sportmedizin, Therapie, Prävention, Ernährung, Technische Universität Darmstadt (Institut für Sportwissenschaft), Veranstaltung: Seminar Gesundheitssport , Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Anfang des 20-sten Jahrhunderts erlebte die Medizin ein Wandel. Die klassischen Infektionskrankheiten wurden durch degenerative Erkrankungen, so genannten Zivilisationskrankheiten, abgelöst. An die Stelle von Krankheitsursachen rückte der Begriff der Risikofaktoren. Die Medizin richtete sich neu aus und arbeitet fortan vorwiegend präventiv.
Entscheidend für diese Entwicklung waren zum einen die fortschreitende Industrialisierung und damit verbundene einseitige Belastungen des menschlichen Körpers in Arbeit und Freizeit, zum anderen die Entdeckung des Penicillins (1928 von A.Fleming), welches erfolgreich gegen die Verbreitung von Infektionskrankheiten eingesetzt werden konnte.
Die präventive Ausrichtung der Medizin wurde durch die Gründung des Deutschen Sportärztebundes 1912 gestärkt. Körperliche Aktivität, Bewegung und recreation nehmen fortan eine zentrale Rolle in der Präventivmedizin ein. Neben den sehr viel bekannteren Aufgaben der Sportmedizin im Zusammenhang mit Leistungs- und Hochleistungssport (z.B. Doping), ist der primäre Arbeitsbereich der Sportmedizin, gesundheitsfördernde Auswirkungen von Bewegung und Präventivmedizin, in der Öffentlichkeit wenig bekannt. Die Bezeichnung Sportmedizin ist hierbei allerdings auch irreführend, so dass überlegt wird, das Fachgebiet Bewegungs- und Sportmedizin zu nennen. Hierin wird deutlicher, dass versucht werden soll, alle Bewegungs- und Sportbezogenen Maßnahmen zu ergreifen, um die Gesundheit zu fördern und Krankheiten bzw. Unfälle zu vermeiden. (vgl. Banzer et. al., 1998, S. 18 & Knoll, 1997, S. 21-23)
Die Erkenntnisse der Präventivmedizin wurden im Laufe der Zeit in unterschiedlichen Modellen systematisiert. Hierzu zählen die zwei folgenden Modelle.
