Abstract

Following the tradition of Max Weber, this thesis is exploring the role of social interaction as an important part of a society. As social interactions encompass a very wide range , the focus is on the role of news in printed media (newspapers) as the part of the social construction of reality where what is defined as reality is in fact a subjective definition upon some event or matter whose Value is inherent within the society. In the definition of Peter Berger, what we know as reality is actually socially reconstructed.
