Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The lecture deals with fundamental questions of the media, especially in epistemological and ethical terms. The lecture links media ethics with media philosophy:
Communication and media ethics: To treat the media and public communication from an ethical perspective means to ask how persons act in this field, how media organizations and institutions should be designed and which rules (values, principles, norms...) should apply to them on different levels.
Media philosophy: The young discipline "media philosophy" wants to clarify fundamental questions of our world dominated by "media". Media influence the structures of perception, thinking and knowledge organization. Digital technologies make this particularly obvious.
The lecture aims at listeners of different faculties and can also be understood as an introduction to media philosophy and media ethics.

Assessment and permitted materials

In all likelihood, four exam dates will be offered, two of which will be oral exams (15-20 minutes per exam), and two of which will be written.
At the student's request and upon request at sozialethik@univie.ac.at, the exam can also be taken in English.
Permitted aids in the examination: none.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

A positive assessment of the examination is achieved if at least half of the maximum number of points of the written examination is reached (grade 4). The other grades are formed in a linear fashion. A very good performance (grade 1) is achieved if the requirements are fulfilled to a degree that goes far beyond the essentials.

Examination topics

The subject matter of the examination is the lecture content and any agreed compulsory reading.
