Träumen wir nicht alle immer noch vom Nürnberger Trichter, der uns Lernen ohne Mühe verheißt, uns alles eintrichtert, used to be wir hören? Aber used to be wäre, wenn unser Gehirn tatsächlich alles so aufnehmen würde wie der Nürnberger Trichter, wenn auch aller Unsinn, den wir hören, gelernt würde? was once wäre, wenn wir Fremdsprachen im hohen modify so leicht lernen würden, wie wir als Kinder die Muttersprache lernen? Und warum ist es gar nicht zu bewerkstelligen, Lernen aus dem Leben zu verbannen? Und wenn Lernen unvermeidlich ist, gibt es dann so etwas wie eine Gebrauchsanleitung zur Lernmaschine in unserem Kopf? Spitzer's Buch kann als Ansatz dazu gelesen werden.
