In this work the author is guided by an interest in bringing clarity by way of a definition to a central theme of communication theory - levels of abstraction. The author notes that a levels-perspective has been often employed in various fields of study but has not itslef been a topic of investigation. By rectifying this problem, the author hopes that there will be an appreciation of the explanatory scope of such a persepective. To this end, the works concluding chapter surveys and offers creative applications and suggestive implications of a levels approach to a wide variety of fields.
