  Abstract:  The German scientific community has pointed out that there is a difference between Communication Science (Kommunikationswissenschaft) and Media Science (Medienwissenschaft). This perspective stays singular in the literature. The article bellow refers to a series of relevant authors in the field of Media Theory. Marshall MchLuhan, Derrick de Kerckhove, Jean Baudrillard, Niklas Luhmann, Paul Virilio, Hans Magnus Enzenberger, Vilem Flusser and Friedrich Kittler are the authors presented in the following pages. The common characteristic of their work is a theoretical, in the majority of the cases, hermeneutical, nonempirical perspective both on the media and on the role of the media in the society.
