ISBN-13: 9783709972694

Sind Sie der Erfolgsverwöhnte oder mehr der Versagende? Die Schweigerin oder doch eher die Auseinandersetzerin? Der Immerzu-Dankbare, der Nimmersatte oder gar die Feinste von den Feinen? Monika Helfer und Michael Köhlmeier stellen uns einen bunten Reigen an menschlichen Charaktertypen vor. Fantasievoll und erfinderisch erzählt das Schriftstellerehepaar vom Kunstverliebten und dem Magenleidenden, vom Gewohnheitsmenschen, der Einsamen und der Eingebildet-Vergesslichen. Und wer sich vor Selbsterkenntnis nicht scheut, kann sich im ein oder der anderen wiedererkennen.

Als Nacherzähler antiker Stoffe beliebt und geschätzt, hat Köhlmeier gemeinsam mit seiner Frau den griechischen Philosophen Theophrast für das 21. Jahrhundert entdeckt. Die "Charaktere" des Theophrast, Nachfolger des großen Aristoteles in dessen Schule, bilden die erste und einzige Charakterlehre des Hellenismus, die zum Vorbild wurde für viele folgende bis hin zu Elias Canettis "Der Ohrenzeuge". Mit Blick auf den Menschen der Gegenwart betreiben Monika Helfer und Michael Köhlmeier seine berühmten Charakterstudien weiter. Anhand von besonderen und alltäglichen Situationen oder auch gewitzten Dialogen halten sie uns den Spiegel vor - ein Geschenkbuch mit philosophischem Mehrwert und Selbsterkenntnis-Gefahr.
