Human Message Systems.
Hopper, Robert
A long-standing dispute over the best way to teach communication involves two major positions: teaching communication through practice/performance and teaching communication through theories and principles. This book describes both theories and practices, offering ideas within a systems framework so that each chapter introduces interacting variables that build upon systems presented in previous chapters. The book is divided into four sections: communication concepts--listening, systems, and communication models; human communication codes--linguistic systems, nonverbal communication systems, and speech communication systems; levels of prediction--attitude systems, relationship development, relationship destruction, organizational systems, and social systems; and public communication--mass communication systems, coping with the barrage of messages, and scientific communication.
