Title: Communication, Comparative Cultures, and Civilizations Vol. 1
Sub-title: A Collection on Culture and Consciousness
Editor(s): Philip Dalton
Publish Date: September 2007
|Communication, Comparative Cultures and Civilizations was conceived as a peer-reviewed publication outlet for rigorous research that addresses culture and civilization through a comparative lens. Rather than seeking research that is purely descriptive in nature, these edited volumes aim to include the finest scholarship that is directed specifically at the discussion, development and evaluation of grand cultural theory. The research explores cultural fusion, exchange, mixing, clashing and globalization. Essays include theoretically grounded studies that have implications for furthering theoretical claims and implications about cultures as interacting worldviews. The presentation of informed (factual) cases of cross-cultural and civilizational relationships includes historical, textual, artistic, economic, anthropological, and sociological data. Further, the volume aims to present field research that tests theory by studying phenomena as they are experienced: by going to the things themselves.|
