Uncertainty and Communication
New Theoretical Investigations
by Colin B. Grant

Abstract:
It is twenty-five years since Jürgen Habermas published his Theory of Communicative Action. Colin B. Grant shares the same commitment to a philosophical theory of communication but issues a range of challenges to Habermas' magnum opus. Uncertainty and Communication mounts a critique of theories of dialogism and intersubjectivity, proposes a radical rethinking of the communicating subject in society and explores the new contingencies of culture and media in our interconnected global communication system.
