Zu den Themen seiner examine der modernen Gesellschaft gehörten auch die Massenmedien.

Stimmen zur „Max Weber und die Entzauberung der Medienwelt“

„Man liest die four hundred Seiten dieses großformatigen Buches ... fasziniert. Mit einem oft geradezu erzählerischen Duktus, sprechenden Zitaten, Assoziationen kultureller Bildung, munteren Polemiken, lockeren Formulierungen und einer jargonlosen Sprache bereitet Weischenbergs Buch eindeutig mehr Vergnügen als die actual existierende Fachprosa. So nimmt guy Teil an einer Synthese großer Stoffmassen, erfreut sich an detailversessenen, faktenintensiven Anmerkungen, dem Assoziationsreichtum geistiger Bezüge, der Kennerschaft in der Kontextualisierung, den wissenssoziologischen Tiefenbohrungen, aber auch dem bezeichnenden Klatsch, der sich in diversen Briefwechseln findet. ... Die Lektüre vermittelt ... einen ganzen Kosmos von Ideen und Entwicklungen zu Max Weber und seiner Rezeption. ... Damit vermittelt das Buch auch die weitere sozialwissenschaftliche Fachgeschichte, die Jahrzehnte des Denkens und Streitens in einer souveränen Synthese nachzuvollziehen erlaubt.“
