Title: The Reach of Dialogue
Sub-title: Confirmation, Voice, and Community
Editor(s): Rob Anderson, Ken Cissna and Ronald C. Arnett
Publish Date: 1994
Pages: 352
Format: Paper
This volume is a serious attempt to define the concept of dialogue and to indicate some basic sources--philosophical, theoretical and practical--that can illuminate dialogue's potential, its limitations, and relevancy to communication theory. Although scholarly in intent and scope, the volume collects and integrates readings that presume no prior expertise in philosophical or social science concepts. In addition to the readings, three original conceptual chapters relating dialogic concepts to interpersonal communication, mass communication, and ongoing communication issues of ethical and social concern are included as are brief linking essays highlighting central questions and issues.
