El fenómeno comunicativo

This book seeks to provoke the necessary debate around the ontology and epistemology of communication. It is an alternative answer to the question: what is communication? For this, the main notions about communication are critically reviewed, which revolve around certain axioms such as: the presence of intention and understanding, as well as the symbolic, human and rational character with which the communicative phenomenon is mainly characterized. Transcending the eminently human character with which communication has been mostly defined, it is intended to position the debate on its ontology from the differentiation between the different organic, cognitive and expressive capacities of communicating beings. In this sense, the book proposes an epistemological, conceptual and analytical model that without underestimating the legacy and tradition of the field of communication studies, extends its scope to other topics, fields and objects of study. For this, the author builds an ontological model of communication that allows epistemologically integrating the various scientific positions on the matter; model whose interdisciplinary mix is ​​indebted to both phenomenological and pragmatic philosophy, neurosciences – particularly cognitive neuroscience and neurobiology – and biosemiotics, given that communication has become one of the most effective keys to explanation and understanding From the contemporary world, this work manages to put some of the necessary inputs to think it at the center of the discussion.
