Eigentlich ist Richard David Precht in diesen Tagen ja mit einem ganz anderen Thema unterwegs: Schule. An seinem neuen Buch „Anna, die Schule und der liebe Gott“, seiner Kritik an schlechtem Unterricht und Forderung, Begabungen und Bedürfnisse der Schüler mehr zu fördern, reiben sich Bildungspolitiker und Lehrer. Aber wie sieht es mit der Erziehung aus? Precht ist Vater eines zehnjährigen Sohnes. Was will er ihm fürs Leben mitgeben? Und was hat er selbst von seinem Vater erfahren? Darüber sprachen wir an einem regnerischen Tag in einem Hamburger Hotel.
