COM3081 The Philosophy of Communication


Both philosophy and communication are concerned with questions about how we create meaning together in a world that can seem beyond our grasp. Recognizing this overlap between philosophy and communication, this course examines the core questions, concepts, and problems of communication in philosophical terms. When we no longer take communication for granted, we are left with perplexing questions that Western philosophy has explored for over 2500 years (for example, how exactly does one brain transmit an idea to another brain?). Through historical and contemporary/postmodern perspectives, we will study a series of philosophical metaphors, theories, and schools of thought that will help us understand the complexities of human communication. Students must have completed three courses at the 2000 level, with grades of C or higher, as prerequisites for this course. One of these prerequisite courses must be either a Communication 2000 or Humanities 2000 level course. Credits: 3.000
