The Advent of Multiple-Process Theories of Communication.
Babrow, Austin S.
Journal of Communication, v43 n3 p110-18 Sum 1993
Claims that the field of communication is moving beyond theorizing that treats communication as a process, to what might be called "multiple-process theory." Examines views of message-processing modes and effects, enlarges the scope of inquiry by considering a multiplicity of levels of analysis, and discusses a philosophical orientation compatible with multiple-process theory.
