Download Distinktion und Konsum der deutschen Mittelschicht. Die by Maximilian Brauer PDF

By Maximilian Brauer

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2015 im Fachbereich Soziologie - Soziales method, Sozialstruktur, Klasse, Schichtung, , Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Wie verhalten sich Konsum und Distinktion der deutschen Mittelschicht im Kontext der Abstiegsangst? Gerade in den vergangenen Jahren wird in der Forschung, der Wirtschaft und in den Medien immer öfter über die deutsche Mittelschicht diskutiert: „Mittelschicht in Gefahr. Anteil der Bevölkerung schrumpft weiter.“ (Main Post), „Die Kluft zwischen Arm und Reich wächst, die deutsche Mittelschicht schrumpft rapide.“ (Spiegel Online).

Karl Marx prophezeite einst das Ende der Mittelschicht, doch bilden sie ganz im Gegenteil nicht erst seit heute das tragende Zentrum zeitgenössischer Gesellschaften. Doch können solche Meldungen und Debatten die Klassenzugehörigen mitunter zunehmend stark verunsichern und erzeugen bei den Betroffenen und darüber hinaus ein diffuses Gefühl der Angst.

Eine Angst, die schwer zu greifen ist, die oftmals nur ein dumpfes Hintergrundrauschen im Sozialverhalten und –denken ist, die aber dennoch die Kraft hat ein Milieu oder gar eine Gesellschaft zu prägen und zu verändern. Dadurch stellt sich mir die Frage, used to be diese Ausgangslage mit dem Umgang untereinander in der sozialen Mitte selbst macht, ob sich auch hier ein verstärktes Konkurrenzdenken und damit einhergehend verstärkte Distinktionsverhalten ergibt. Und dazu möchte ich auch noch den Fokus auf Konsum, kulturellen sowie wirtschaftlichen, legen.

Dazu werde ich zunächst einmal die Mittelschicht näher bestimmen und anschließend das Thema der diffusen Angst gründlicher beleuchten. Ich werde auf Ängste der Mittelschicht eingehen und sie in Bezug zu ihrem Distinktionsverhalten und ihrem Konsum stellen und dazu auch einige Hintergründe und Theorieansätze offenlegen.

1.Einleitung
Wie ist die Gesellschaft, in der wir leben, zu charakterisieren? Die Antworten auf diese Frage fallen sehr unterschiedlich aus. Neben Begriffen wie Risikogesellschaft, Klassengesellschaft, Industriegesellschaft, Dienstleistungsgesellschaft, Kommunikationsgesellschaft, Erlebnisgesellschaft oder Multioptionsge-sellschaft ist vor allem der Begriff der Informationsgesellschaft und der Wissensgesellschaft in den letzen Jahren verstärkt in den Vordergrund gerückt.
Die vorliegende Arbeit beschäftigt sich mit den durch den Übergang von der Industriegesellschaft zur Wissensgesellschaft bedingten Veränderungen, die in allen oder zumindest den meisten gesellschaftlichen Bereichen zu spüren sind und so einen gesamtgesellschaftlichen Wandel bedingen.
In dieser Arbeit sollen genauer die Auswirkungen auf die Bildung und die damit verbundenen Auswirkungen auf die Arbeitswelt betrachtet werden, die der Wandel von der Industriegesellschaft zur Wissensgesellschaft mit sich bringt.
