Kommunikationswissenschaft als Integrationsdisziplin

Kommunikationswissenschaft ist eine Integrationsdisziplin. So lautet nicht nur die gängige Selbstdefinition im Rahmen von Fachgesellschaften, sondern so wird auch fachhistorisch die Entwicklung des Faches im deutschen Sprachraum beschrieben. „Integration“ scheint dabei ein Fluchtpunkt der Entwicklung und ein Desiderat zu sein und ein Prozess, der nicht abgeschlossen, doch weit genug fortgeschritten ist, um ihn in seinen Konturen zu beschreiben.

The prehistory stage is characterized by the formation of motives, reasons, commitments, ideas what to do, wishes, desires, needs, temptations, aversions, emotions, beliefs, impressions, which become later relevant for the decision. The preh­ istory is in itself a sequence of actions and experiences, where the agent is in active and passive contact with his surroundings, including typically interac­ tion with other persons. An idea to do something may crystallize over a long period of time, unconsciously or partially conscious, until it becomes finally in the decision process an intention.

Those types which do not much differ in size and ma­ neuverability. The ability of car driving, therefore, can be projected to other particular cars of the same type and of similar types. The projectability is fuz­ zy, it fades away at the edges of the similarity field. If someone can drive a VW, say, it is clear that he can drive a Toyota and that he cannot drive a big truck, but for a Landrover it may be unclear. The projectability of ability is ev­ en fuzzy for cars of the same type. I said that one is allowed to project to any normal car of the same type, since there may be cars that are so modified, damaged, or sensitive that one is only able to drive them after a good deal of experience with the particular car.
