A Multicultural Perspective of Human Communication.
Casmir, Fred L.
This paper views communication as the major human survival tool. Any approach which limits or hampers the innate metabolic human ability to adapt, in order to maximize the chances for survival through communication, is thus seen as dangerous. Instead, a methodology is suggested to develop a communication sub-culture, to facilitate individual contributions and adaptations, rather than the use of methodologies, organizations or systems based on fitting participants into preconceived structures. Development of a matrix for interaction thus becomes a result of maximized individual development and adaptation rather than a result of submerging the individual into some definitional group, system, or organization. This basic principle is specifically applied to the area of international and intercultural communication. (Author/CFM)
