New PDF release: Risikogesellschaft und Journalismus - Leistungen,

By Tim Cappelmann

Diplomarbeit aus dem Jahr 2005 im Fachbereich Medien / Kommunikation - Journalismus, Publizistik, be aware: 1,0, Hochschule Bremen (Journalistik und Kommunikationswissenschaften), one hundred twenty five Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Die moderne Gesellschaft wandelt sich. Sie wird komplexer, Entscheidungen auf politischer, wirtschaftlicher und sozialer Ebene undurchsichtiger. Der Fortschritt der westlichen Welt bringt nicht nur Erleichterungen mit sich, sondern auch Risiken. Die möglichen Gefahren gerade technischer Entwicklungen sind in den letzten Jahrzehnten stark ins öffentliche Interesse gerückt und ein vorrangiges Thema gesellschaftlicher Kommunikation geworden. Menschen in entwickelten Industrienationen wird stärker bewusst, dass sie in einer Welt leben, die nicht nur von Sicherheit, Wohlstand und Überfluss geprägt ist, sondern zunehmend von Risiken und Gefahren. Die Gesellschaft entwickelt ein Bewusstsein dafür, „dass die Zukunft von Entscheidungen abhängt, die in der Gegenwart getroffen werden müssen, deren Folgen guy aber weder im Guten noch im Schlechten überblicken, geschweige denn steuern kann“ (Bechmann 1993: 7). Jedes method unserer Gesellschaft basiert darauf, Entscheidungen zu treffen. Jede Entscheidung beinhaltet ein Risiko. Und auch eine Nicht-Entscheidung ist eine Entscheidung. In der Risikokommunikation gibt es verschiedene Ansätze, wie Risiko kommuniziert werden sollte und mit welchen Medien. Dabei ist es der Risikoforschung bislang noch nicht gelungen, einen einheitlichen Risikobegriff oder eine zusammenhängende Risikotheorie zu entwickeln.

Alle Gesellschaften verbindet bei genauerer Betrachtung die Gemeinsamkeit, Risiken zu bergen; jedes Modell beinhaltet eine Konstante: Risiko. Die Risikogesellschaft beansprucht die Nachfolge der Industriegesellschaft, da sie in „erster Linie nicht durch technologische und industrielle Innovation, sondern durch die Produktion von technologischen Risiken irreversibel geprägt ist“ (Görke, 1994: 16).

Aufbauend darauf wird die derzeitige Preisgestaltung im deutschen E-Book-Markt untersucht, die von einem hohen Preisniveau und einer Orientierung am gedruckten Buch gekennzeichnet ist. Allerdings zeigen die Umfrageergebnisse, dass die Nachfrager einen
maximalen Preis von 10 Euro für ein belletristisches booklet akzeptieren und der Preis unter dem der inhaltlich identischen Druckausgabe angesetzt werden sollte.
