1 Introduction From a social constructivist perspective, human handling of endangerments cannot be considered in isolation from the modes of perception that form the basis for the assessment of the endangerments. Perceptions of endangerments should also not only be seen in terms of dependence on the circumstances of spatial situation, for instance whether a place of residence is close to a nuclear power plant. They must also be considered in relation to the changeable historical, social and cultural contexts in which they emerge (see Christmann/Ibert in this

actions can either be determined a priori through mathematical operations or ex post by evaluating past experiences. Luhmann (1991) in contrast sees danger as the counterpart to risk. Decisive here is the attribution of unwished consequences of action: are they attributed to the decision-making system itself (risk: I'm moving next door to a nuclear energy plant) or are they attributed to the environment of the system (danger: a nuclear energy plant is being built next to my house)? In this way a system cannot avoid producing risks for itself and dangers for its
