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.

Likewise, types of identities, such as individual and collective or ego- and group-specific, considered against the background of biological and cultural, and other identities, create the investigative perspective of our presentation. Accordingly, its material source comprises a selection of theoretical and applied works on the scientific aspects of constructivism and human identity in an ordering …
