Text topic: Ethics of Media
Text author: Дивна Вуксановић
The text problematizes the status of media ethics in relation to general theoretic discourse, investigating its grounding as an applied ethic discipline. The article opens with consideration of the media ethics in its relation to traditional ethic concepts of various orientations and schools of thinking, later to focus on a more specific media topics. Speculative results of critical reflections on subjects such as modern media ethics lead to conclusion that nowadays - due to ever increasing influence of mass communication media and the so called new media - could be more appropriate to reflect on the phenomenon of media common ways in tracks of classical Hegel’s Sittlichkeit, instead of media ethics based on legal regulations in the field, that is on individualistic concepts of civil ethics. Theories of Marshal MacLuan and Paul Virilio also discussed and actualized in this essay support such an approach.
