EPISTEMOLOGICAL IDENTITY OF COMMUNICATION IN THE PUBLIC SPACE


Posted On Jul 27 2012 by

Departing from the interdisciplinary character of communication, this paper attempts to identify its epistemological identity in the public space and to analyse the defining features of this type of communication. Many experts in the field consider the epistemological status of communication to be at the centre of culture, knowledge and social behaviour. From this perspective, communication studies imply an inter-, multi-, and trans-disciplinary approach, since we cannot restrict a field with such wide application within strictly defined scientific margins.

Within the typology of features that allow us to differentiate communication in the public space from other types,we find its contextual character, the continuous interaction between speaker and public, and the need to reach consensus in order to validate a certain interpretation of reality.
