Institutionalisation/Money/Power/Media/Habermas: Thesis: Conditions for an optimal institutionalisation of media (here: money and power): Real values and coverage reserves must be such that they have an empirically motivating force. The physical control of cover reserves must be possible. It must be possible to measure, relinquished and deposit the media. The normative anchoring of the media must not create any new communication effort and must not cause any further risks of dissent.
Problem: this reaches its limits at the level of the social system: new names for media can always be found, but these are initially only postulates that must prove useful.
Another condition for the institutionalisation of media is their calculability: in the case of value retention and influence as media (as proposed by Talcott Parsons) this is not or hardly given. Neither is depositing possible. The scientific system with a recognisable gradation of reputation is an exception._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
