Philosophical Approaches to Communication
A comprehensive introduction to the forms and various philosophical theories of communication, this volume is composed of three sections focusing on the production of culturally relevant communication, the interpretation of communicative messages, and the effects of communication on both speaker and listener. Each section draws on the work of key philosophers—from Foucault to Derrida to Habermas—and presents a detailed critical overview of the work in relation to the field of communication. Exhaustively researched, this book presents an up-to-date overview of thinking on communication theory in one inclusive volume.
