According to sociological diagnoses of time, a strong postmodern consumption, entertainment and adventure culture has developed in many Western countries. This contribution is linked in particular to Schulze's "Erlebnisgesellschaft" (1992). Theoretically, it is argued that people in a consumer and adventure society are increasingly oriented towards the interior: they are increasingly striving for a beautiful experience, a high level of well-being and positive emotions. With data from the European Social Survey 2006, this thesis is examined in a comparative perspective for 23 European countries.
