Overcoming the Objectification of Nature in Constitutive Theories: Toward a Transhuman, Materialist Theory of Communication.
Rogers, Richard A.
Western Journal of Communication, v62 n3 p244-72 Sum 1998
Argues that communication scholars should closely examine the affiliations between constitutive theories and material attempts to order the earth, to bring it into line with idealist discourses such as logic and geometry. Works to account for the power of discursive and natural forces by deconstructing the ideal/material distinction and allowing for the inclusion of nonessentialized, nonhuman voices. (SC)
