Roth, James David
The focus of this work is the introduction and description of a quasi-new concept called socio-communication. In chapter 1 the term "socio communication" is defined as "human interaction, among and between different classes of people, by means of verbal and nonverbal expression in day-to-day social situations." In chapter 2 social communication from prehistoric times to the present is summarized. Technology and specialization are discussed in light of the concept of socio-communication. A causal chain is proposed, linking these concepts. The contemporary culture map is split into eight kinds of man, based on posited characteristics and values. Chapter 3 describes the socio-communication among and between the kinds of man, based on inferences from related literature and informal conversations with respected professors in the field of communicology. The final chapter suggests several possible solutions to gaps in contemporary socio-communication. (EE)
