Enviromental Protection, Critique of Ideology and the Blind Spots of Cognition

The study replies to responses to my initial discussion paper. After analyzing the comments, it argues that critical analysts have primarily given a critique of ideology rather than giving an analysis of my research on the ecological communication of today’s society. The present analysis concludes that the reason for this is that most of the criticisms were made without deep knowledge of Luhmann’s social theory. On the other hand, the study analyzes how the debate between critical and functionalist social theory can be made fruitful in order to better interpret modern society. The last unit of the writing responds to the results of sociological value research and looks for reasons of the lack of enviromentally conscious action.
