Publizistik, the precursor of communication sciences?

Keywords: Publizistik, communication science in Germany, history of communication studies

Abstract

In Síntese de história da publicística - Estágios reflexivos da ciência da comunicação pública alemã, Francisco Rüdiger presents to the Portuguese-speaking readers an important contribution to the study of the history of communicational thinking. We show how the work sheds light on the origins, formation and decline of this academic project until the 1970s, when it gave space to the communication sciences, now media sciences. We evaluate the merits of the work and question the scholar’s intention to offer material to support his suspicions: the publizistik as a precursor of the academic field of communication.
