[Commlist] New title in the Palgrave/IAMCR book series

Thu Nov 14 16:52:09 GMT 2019

/The Science of the Commons: A Note on Communication Methodology/ is the ninth book to be published in the Palgrave/IAMCR book series Global Transformations in Media and Communication Research <>.

Written by Muniz Sodré and translated from Portuguese by David Hauss, /The Science of the Commons: A Note on Communication Methodology/ proposes a new mode of comprehending communication. Leaving aside a sociological and linguistic model that defines communication as a process of information transmission, this book introduces an innovative ethical-political understanding of communication as a connection of the common, the cohesive tie of the community. Muniz Sodré critiques the weak ethical and political aspirations of the field of communication and suggests the construction of a ‘post-disciplinary’ science, set against the classic disciplines of sociology, anthropology and economics, which resists a global ideology of financialization. Moving the field of communication beyond media studies to a philosophical reflection on the roots of the community, /The Science of the Commons/ is a ground-breaking book that offers fresh perspectives for the study of communication worldwide.

This book:

  * Provides a ground-breaking new perspective on communication studies
  * Challenges standard sociological and anthropological thinking on media
  * Sheds light on the true theoretical core of communication and its
    interdisciplinary background
