Публичный дискурс коронавирусной пандемии: запрос на ответственность
The coronavirus epidemic caused not only an explosion of attention in Russian public communication. The media discourse content transformed radically during the first months of the 2020 epidemic: from distrust and panic to responsible balanced content. This phenomenon analysis allows a deeper understanding the evolution of the value-normative characteristics of modern society, broadcast in the media. This is about the trend of transition from ill-conceived propaganda of rights to a balance of rights and responsibilities, increased attention in public discourse to free speech, the transition from the dominance of post-truth to manifestations of personal freedom as responsibility. The coronarvirus discourse dynamics not only fully fit into this general civilizational trend, but it gave additional impulses to its development. Such a shift in emphasis makes it useful to appeal to the concept of parrhesia - a free and responsible “word-taking”.
