Freiheit und Selbst-Gewinn durch Freundschaft : nicht-kommerzielle Gastfreundschaftsnetzwerke im Lichte der praktischen Philosophie

  • Nicht-kommerzielle Gast-Gastgeber-Beziehungen sind im Tourismus kein neues Phänomen, ermöglichen sie ursprünglich überhaupt Reisen. Die Verbreitung neuer Gastfreundschaftsnetzwerke im digitalen Zeitalter veränderte jedoch etwas: zu Grunde liegende Werte wie Freundschaft und Authentizität, Selbst-Erfahrung, Netzwerkpflege und ökonomisches Kalkül scheinen besondere Reise-Erlebnisse zu konstituieren und die etablierten Touristik-Unternehmen vor ganz neue Herausforderungen zu stellen... Dahinter stehen grundlegende Fragen guter Lebensführung, wie diese bereits in der Nikomachischen Ethik des Aristoteles thematisiert wurden.
  • In order to understand the "non-commercial" hospitality-networks of the digital age, such as "Couchsurfing", it is useful to look at some underlying ethical principles. What did hospitality originally mean and how did the focus change with Aristotle's Nicomachean Ehtics? Since then and up to the present day interesting inner difficulties have arisen. These difficulties can lead us to a deeper underständing of today's forms of tourism and hospitality, notably of its non-commercial forms. The "classical" ideal of hospitality will be explained as the basis for social life and citizenship. Potential guests, foreigners, strangers or others, should be valued according to their social contribution. Hospitality lost its "holy" nature as once a religious duty, and became a question of benefit, with the emergence of xenophobia as a means of protecting traditional ways of life. Today's new forms of hospitality differ fundamentally in these aspects: especially the non-commercial forms which emphasize the idea of a mutual understanding among people, human rights and "shared" values. Nevertheless, there are interesting parallels to be explored such as "Couchsurfers" which show some ambivalence and stress the idea of benefit.
