Philosophy of Communication

Claudia Bianchi - Nicla Vassallo (a cura di)



What must language be in order for it to be truly communication? Why do we communicate and why must we – if we must – communicate? Bianchi and Vassallo present the many complexities of the issue of communication in the key philosophical disciplines, in an efficient introduction that explores the core problems and provides new brilliant solutions.
