The Gaps of Which Communication Is Made.
Peters, John Durham
Critical Studies in Mass Communication, v11 n2 p117-40 Jun 1994
Argues that the gap between transmission and reception is fundamental to most communication. Summarizes theorizing on communication and mass communication in Plato, about U.S. broadcasting, and in hermeneutics. Concludes that a conceptual contrast between open dissemination (mass) and individualized interaction (interpersonal) is inevitable because human beings are finite. (SR)
