Philosophy of Communication Division

Philosophy of Communication Division logo

The Philosophy of Communication Interest Group interrogates the relationship between philosophical frameworks and our understanding of communication. The Interest Group explores the overlaps, intersections, and complements between philosophy and communication. We provide an academic home for work that addresses communication from a philosophical orientation and/or philosophy from a communication perspective, both broadly defined. The Interest Group is open to all traditions of philosophical inquiry (ancient, medieval, modern, contemporary, postmodern, western, eastern, analytic, continental) and is supportive of semiotic, phenomenological, hermeneutic, critical, psychoanalytic, communicological, narrative, dialogical, and other methodologies that examine communicative experience.
