Communicative Engagement and Social Liberation : Justice Will be Made Hardback
Part of the The Fairleigh Dickinson University Press Series in Communication Studies series
Communicative Engagement and Social Liberation: Justice Will Be Made recognizes limitations in contemporary understandings that separate history and rhetoric.
Drawing together ontological and epistemic perspectives to allow for a fuller appreciation of communication in shaping lived-experience, facets of the two academic subjects are united in acts of communicative engagement. Communicative engagement draws from Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka's writings on the human condition; extends the communicative praxis of philosopher Calvin O.
Schrag by reuniting theoria-poiesis-praxis; expands Ramsey Eric Ramsey's writings to provide ground for vitalizing social liberation; and includes the work of philosophers including Hans-Georg Gadamer, Maurice Merleau-Ponty, and Michel Foucault as well as philosophers of communication including Lenore Langsdorf, Michael J.
Hyde, Corey Anton, and others who guide a recollection of the significance of poiesis in human communication.
Myrtilla Miner, Mary White Ovington, and Jessie Daniel Ames dedicated their lives to being out-of-place and speaking out-of-turn to alter the way humanity was understood by members of society at large.
The lived-experiences of these historical figures assists readers in recognizing how creativity (poiesis) can potentially enable liberation from restrictive social circumstances.
