Complex Communication System and Social Change.
Chang, Won H.
The basic question under examination is the underlying force that brings forth changes in cultural and social organizations. By employing general system theory and communication systemic analysis, the author concludes that communication, especially human communication, is the main vehicle of change. Human interchange, it is suggested, is constant and self-reflective at the subconscious and conscious levels in which the individual "constructs himself-in-his-environment." The interrelation of the individual and his systematic universe forms the basis of change. This interdependency is the best mode of approaching communication study. (Author/CH)
