The essays in this volume consider, in multiple ways, how philosophies of communication and communication ethics can shape and enhance human communication. Collectively, this book provides a philosophical and pragmatic orientation to issues that involve interpersonal and organizational communicative contexts from marketplace, political, and feminist perspectives. Chapters explore public attacks of schadenfreude, political communication, communication in pedagogical settings, intercultural perspectives of narrative and memory in communicative engagement, ethical public relations practices, narrative ethics and the feminist voice, the ethics of care, and the rhetorical consciousness of marketing.
Philosophies of Communication invites students to develop or improve the critical thinking skills that in turn help them negotiate deeper philosophical and ethical significances within their everyday communicative encounters.
