Kritische Theorie der Kommunikation

Bei University of Westminister Press gibt es Christian Fuchs Critical Theory of Communication. New Readings of Lukács, Adorno, Marcuse, Honneth and Habermas in the Age of the Internet kostenlos zum Download als epub, mobi oder PDF.

Doch was erwartet den geneigten, lesefreudigen und an theoretischer Lektüre Interessierten von einem Autor, auf dessen Blog ich einen Blogbeitrag mit dem Titel „Right-Wing Extremism 2.0: The Austrian Presidential Election on Social Media“ ebenso gefunden habe, wie eine Sammlung von 13 Kurzfilmen zum Thema „Social Media“, in denen es über diverse Theorien zu sozialen Medien geht? Der Klappentext dazu:

This book contributes to the foundations of a critical theory of communication as shaped by the forces of digital capitalism. […] digital media Professor Christian Fuchs explores how the thought of some of the Frankfurt School’s key thinkers can be deployed for critically understanding media in the age of the Internet. Five essays […] review aspects of the works of Georg Lukács, Theodor W. Adorno, Herbert Marcuse, Axel Honneth and Jürgen Habermas and apply them as elements of a critical theory of communication’s foundations. The approach taken starts from Georg Lukács Ontology of Social Being, draws on the work of the Frankfurt School thinkers, and sets them into dialogue with the Cultural Materialism of Raymond Williams. […] Critical Theory of Communication offers a vital set of new insights on how communication operates in the age of information, digital media and social media, arguing that we need to transcend the communication theory of Habermas by establishing a dialectical and cultural-materialist critical theory of communication.

Go for it! Aber der schönste Teil des Klappentexts ist der Ausblick auf mehr:

It is the first title in a major new book series ‚Critical Digital and Social Media Studies‘ published by the University of Westminster Press.
