Reading Humboldt Through the Theory of Communicative Action: The Democratic Potential of Symbolic Interaction
Contribution to Books
Relatively submerged conceptions in the history of communication studies often stand as an alternative set of perspectives on communication waiting to be mentioned and developed. Some provide a basis for more critical, more humanist, lines of inquiry for the academy, its students, and others. Perhaps one day introductory textbooks for the general as well as specialist student will have abandoned the usual technical renditions of communication to create alternative histories of communication studies to include conceptions proposed here.
