Body Language and the Social Order; Communication as Behavioral Control.
Scheflen, Albert E.
Human communication, verbal and especially nonverbal, is based upon lower and earlier primate development as well as on extensive culturally learned behavior. Kinesthetic study can discover behaviors which maintain and disrupt social orders of all types--governmental, economic, familial, and personal. Communicational behavior exerts controls and limits on human freedom, especially as practiced by all kinds of institutions and in politics. The science of body communication must politicize itself so that it can help relieve mankind of the "double binding" process of neurotic and psychotic states of mind. (CH)
