Musik, Rundfunk und Hörer : die soziologischen Aspekte der Musik am Rundfunk by Alphons Silbermann( Book )

35 editions published between 1954 and 1959 in 4 languages and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gegenüber der eintomgen Litanei der kulturkritischen Argumente, die jedes Mal ertönen, sowie in der tlffentlichkeit von :len Problemen der Massenkommunikation wie Presse, Film, Rundfunk und Fern sehen gesprochen wird, wirkt es wie eine wahre Wohltat, wenn sich endlich ein Forscher diesen Fragen in unbefangener Weise zu nähern sucht, wie das Alphons Silbermann im vorliegenden Buche unternimmt. Eine solche Einstellung wil1d im übrigen um so positiver zu beurteilen sein, wenn der zentrale Gegenstand, um den es dabei geht, ausgerech net, der von "Kunst und Kommunikation" ist, wie der programma tische Tüel der Reihe heißt, die mit diesem Bande eingeleitet wird. Denn, die erwähnten kulturkritischen Er, güsse pflegen sich allemal dann zu einem lauten Klagegeheul zu erheben, sowie nicht nur allgemein von den Mitteln der Massenkommunrkation, ihrer Stellung und Funk tion in der modernen Gesellschaft gesprochen, sondern das viel spe ziellere Problem ihrer Beziehung zur sogenannten "Kultur" ins Auge gefaßt wird, wo doch vermeintlich allgemeine übereinstimmung dar über1!u herrschen scheint, daß sämtliche Mittel der Massenkommuni kation ausscMießlich der minderen Sphäre der "Zivilisation" angehö ren. Gemeinhin folgt unmittdbar die Stereotype von, der "Vermas sung", der die Kultur dabei unterworfen werden soll, womit dann im allgemeinen die Diskussion geschlossen wird, nachdem man bestenfalls noch ein paar Beispiele für den vermeintlichen Niedergang der Kultur angeführt hat, der durch den "Massenkonsum" von Kulturgütern ein geleitet wird
Grovelling and other vices : the sociology of sycophancy by Alphons Silbermann( Book )

13 editions published between 1996 and 2000 in German and English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Grovelling receives its first sociological treatment in this widely acclaimed work by the eminent German sociologist, Alphons Silbermann. According to Silbermann, grovelling, or arse-licking, is not a character trait but a model for action. It operates at the very centre of social mechanisms; and it is a process upon which any attempt to understand human arrangement must focus." "Furthermore, from analysing the arts of grovelling, sycophancy, duplicity and obsequiousness, we learn much about society, its ways of lies and flattery, cunning and deception, hypocrisy and baseness, false adulation and deliberate self-degradation. The author explains the purpose of grovelling and what you can do to protect yourself from it, and the methods of taking and avoiding the groveller's role."--Jacket

Auschwitz, nie davon gehört? : Erinnern und Vergessen in Deutschland by Alphons Silbermann( Book )

7 editions published in 2000 in German and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discusses changes in the conception of "Auschwitz" in German consciousness, based on a survey carried out in May 1997 comprising interviews with 2,197 persons between the ages of 17-50. Among the questions were: "Do you know what Auschwitz was? Do you know about additional concentration camps? Do you know how many people were transported to Auschwitz? What methods of killing were used? How many persons were killed in concentration camps?" 20% of the interviewees aged 14-17, and 4.3% of all those interviewed, did not know what Auschwitz was. 69% of the interviewees associated the name Auschwitz with concentration camps. Only 20% knew names of other concentration camps, and 20% were not able to situate the Nazi period historically. 14.8% of all those questioned, and 17.9% of the older interviewees, considered reports on the events in concentration camps exaggerated. The study also uncovered Holocaust denial. The authors criticize historical revisionism, self-deceit, and the minimizing of Nazi crimes in Germany. Appendix I contains the 23 questions presented to the respondents. Appendix II presents tables with the results and accompanying commentary
