Overview

This comprehensive and engaging treatment of communication ethics combines student application and theoretical engagement. Communication Ethics Literacy: Dialogue and Difference reviews classic communication ethics approaches and extends the conversation about dialogue and difference in public and private life. Introducing communication ethics as a pragmatic survival skill in a world of difference, the authors offer a learning model that frames communication ethics as arising from a set of goods found within particular narratives, traditions, or virtue structures that guide human life.

Editorial Reviews

Annette Holba
"In relation to other books about ethics published in both the communication and business disciplines,Communication Ethics Literacy is different because it is organized around metaphors that emphasize learning rather than providing a list of static ethical theories, which is a common method for studying ethics. The metaphors are designed to provide readers interpretive texture necessary to apply the ethical frames discussed. "

-Annette Holba Plymouth State University
