Communication and Dewey's Ethics: Toward a Rhetoric of Growth.
Johnstone, Christopher Lyle
John Dewey's philosophy clarifies the relationship between communication and the emergence of character. His moral theory recommends a conception of "moral selfhood" emphasizing three attributes: freedom, social sensitivity, and the growth of mind. Communication is the principle instrument through which these characteristics can be extended. The primary obligation, therefore, attending every communicative act, whatever its immediate purpose, is to discover and employ modes of expression that will facilitate the moral evolution of the participants.
