Title Technology, Society and Communication. To an integrated model of effects and determinations of technologies of communication Summary The objective of the work is to design a hypothesis that integrates the greater amount of levels of interdependence between the technology of the communication and the social reality. Part of four theories that take different positions on the relation between technology and society: the ‘‘internalism’’ and the ‘‘exter- nalism’’, on the one hand, and the ‘‘technological determinism’’ and the ‘‘institutionalism’’, on the other hand. On the base of these four theories, the study on approval puts a new hypothesis –formed with its more powerful and safe arguments– by means of the analysis of two historical cases: the press and the television. Keywords Technology, establishment, mass communication, social structure.
