Für ihn scheint heute kein Superlativ gewaltig genug: Einer der größten Deutschen aller Zeiten wird er genannt, wichtigster Inspirator und Irritierer. Vielleicht conflict Max Weber – vor a hundred and fifty Jahren in Erfurt geboren – einer der letzten Universalgelehrten. Sein Werk blieb rätselhaft. Doch er hinterließ eine Vielzahl einprägsamer Begriffe und Formeln: Idealtypus, Verantwortungsethik, air of mystery, die harten Bretter, die der Politiker bohren muss – und vor allem die ‚Entzauberung der Welt’. Zu den Themen seiner examine der modernen Gesellschaft gehörten auch die Massenmedien. Das große empirische Projekt, welches er 1910 der deutschen Soziologie zur Vermessung der Medienwelt in die Wiege gelegt hatte, scheiterte. Seine Anregungen aber haben sich seither in vielfältiger Weise in den Diskursen über Medien und Journalismus niedergeschlagen. Die Ergebnisse einer detaillierten Spurenlese werden in dieser Studie präsentiert, die erstmals mit bibliometrischen Methoden durchgeführt wurde. Sie mündet in eine aktuelle Zustandsbeschreibung der Kommunikationsverhältnisse und ihrer Erforschung – a hundred Jahre nach Weber.
Stimmen zur „Max Weber und die Entzauberung der Medienwelt“
„Man liest die four hundred Seiten dieses großformatigen Buches ... fasziniert. Mit einem oft geradezu erzählerischen Duktus, sprechenden Zitaten, Assoziationen kultureller Bildung, munteren Polemiken, lockeren Formulierungen und einer jargonlosen Sprache bereitet Weischenbergs Buch eindeutig mehr Vergnügen als die genuine existierende Fachprosa. So nimmt guy Teil an einer Synthese großer Stoffmassen, erfreut sich an detailversessenen, faktenintensiven Anmerkungen, dem Assoziationsreichtum geistiger Bezüge, der Kennerschaft in der Kontextualisierung, den wissenssoziologischen Tiefenbohrungen, aber auch dem bezeichnenden Klatsch, der sich in diversen Briefwechseln findet. ... Die Lektüre vermittelt ... einen ganzen Kosmos von Ideen und Entwicklungen zu Max Weber und seiner Rezeption. ... Damit vermittelt das Buch auch die weitere sozialwissenschaftliche Fachgeschichte, die Jahrzehnte des Denkens und Streitens in einer souveränen Synthese nachzuvollziehen erlaubt.“
