Communicating Summary


Communicating: The Multiple Modes of Human Interconnection by Ruth Finnegan (The Open University, UK)

In Communicating, the anthropologist Ruth Finnegan considers the many and varied modes through which we humans communicate and the multisensory resources we draw on.
The book uncovers the amazing array of sounds, sights, smells, gestures, looks, movements, touches and material objects which humans use so creatively to interconnect both nearby and across space and time - resources consistently underestimated in those western ideologies that prioritise 'rationality' and referential language.

Communicating Reviews


'Finnegan brings us to our senses in this finely argued book. She reminds us of just how much more than information exchange is involved in our human interconnectedness. Finally we have a book on communication that is as full and rich as communication itself. The book is full of the sights and the feel, the noise and smells of human life.' - Ron Scollon, Georgetown University
