Human Communication: A Meaning-Making Experience

Cover Page

Abstract


The article reviews some modern approaches to human communication. It highlights the approach, which is relatively new to the Russian social science and humanities tradition, that is: communication as social construction. The social construction approach brings into focus the constructive, transformative, and constitutive role of communication, while viewing communication itself as a meaning-making and negotiation (coordination) process.
