    Die Ausführungen haben zum Ziel, einen konzeptionellen Rahmen und theoretisch fruchtbare Perspektiven für eine soziologische Analyse von Öffentlichkeit zu entwickeln. Unter Öffentlichkeit wird ein ausdifferenziertes Kommunikationssystem verstanden, dessen Funktion darin besteht, zwischen den Meinungen und Interessen der Bürger und der kollektiven Akteure einer Gesellschaft einerseits und dem politischen System andererseits zu vermitteln. Die spezifische Art und die resultierenden Selektivitäten der Vermittlung lassen sich mit Rekurs sowohl auf die Binnenstruktur und die Sinnrationalität des Systems Öffentlichkeit als auch in Bezug auf unterschiedliche Akteurs Strategien beschreiben. Funktionen und Dysfunktionen von Öffentlichkeit werden herauszuarbeiten versucht.
