On Human Communication

, pages: 226-232

The study of human communication often focuses on a one-dimensional process of human-to-human interaction through messages. This article presents a five-dimensional model of human communication and argues that human communication can be understood best if we take into account the multidimensionality and the integrated nature of this process as a whole. Looking at the universe of human communication, it is possible through this model to assess some relevant aspects of the individual and the society’s cultural variations and development. In the study of any areas of human communication, and in exploring new avenues and voices of knowledge, we should not be deceived by the illusion of the vastness of the literature; we need to concentrate on the diversity of cultural views in order to make the field more valid, legitimate and challenging.
