"This comprehensive treatment of communication ethics combines student application and theoretical engagement. Communication Ethics Literacy: Dialogue and Difference reviews classic communication ethics approaches and extends the conversation about dialogue and difference in public and private life. Introducing communication ethics as a pragmatic survival skill in a world of difference, the authors offer a learning model that frames communication ethics as arising from a set of goods found within particular narratives, traditions, or virtue structures that guide human life." "This core text is designed for the undergraduate course in Communication Ethics, as well as other communication courses where ethics constitutes a major portion of study."--Jacket

Communication ethics in dark times : Hannah Arendt's rhetoric of warning and hope by Ronald C Arnett( )

17 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 1,293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Renowned in the disciplines of political theory and philosophy, Hannah Arendt's searing critiques of modernity continue to resonate in other fields of thought decades after she wrote them. In Communication Ethics in Dark Times: Hannah Arendt's Rhetoric of Warning and Hope, author Ronald C. Arnett offers a groundbreaking examination of fifteen of Arendt's major scholarly works, considering the German writer's contributions to the areas of rhetoric and communication ethics for the first time. Arnett focuses on Arendt's use of the phrase "dark times" to describe the mistakes of modernity, defined by Arendt as the post-Enlightenment social conditions, discourses, and processes ruled by principles of efficiency, progress, and individual autonomy. These principles, Arendt argues, have led humanity down a path of folly, banality, and hubris. Throughout his interpretive evaluation, Arnett illuminates the implications of Arendt's persistent metaphor of "dark times" and engages the question, How might communication ethics counter the tenets of dark times and their consequences? A compelling study of Hannah Arendt's most noteworthy works and their connections to the fields of rhetoric and communication ethics, Communication Ethics in Dark Times provides an illuminating introduction for students and scholars of communication ethics and rhetoric, and a tool with which experts may discover new insights, connections, and applications to these fields."--Publisher's website

Communication ethics in an age of diversity( Book )

9 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and French and held by 446 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Communication ethics: between cosmopolitanism and provinciality( Book )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume occasions a dialogue between major authors in the field who engage in a conversation on cosmopolitanism and provinciality from a communication ethics perspective. There is no consensus on what constitutes communication ethics, cosmopolitanism, or provinciality: the task is more modest and diverse and began with contributors being asked what the bias of their work suggests or offers for understanding the theme Communication Ethics: Between Cosmopolitanism and Provinciality. Rather than responding authoritatively, each essay acknowledges the contributor's own work. This book offers no answers, but invites a conversation that is more akin to a beginning, a joining, an admission that there is more than "me," "us," or "my kind" of people, theory, or wisdom. The book will be an excellent resource for instructors and for upper-level undergraduate and graduate courses in communication."--Jacket

An overture to philosophy of communication : the carrier of meaning by Ronald C Arnett( Book )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An "Overture to Philosophy of Communication: The Carrier of Meaning" explores a world beyond information accumulation, stressing meaningful engagement with existence. Meaning is composed between and among persons, ideas, and activities of communicative engagement. Meaning is central to the study and practice of philosophy of communication, providing story-laden guidance. The book examines philosophical differences between Boss and Zorba, following the development of their friendship in Zorba the Greek. Their story helps to exemplify the meaningful coordinates of philosophy of communication established in each chapter. The authors claim meaning as the pivotal conceptual terrain for philosophy of communication. This book offers a rationale for the pragmatic necessity of philosophy of communication in understanding the how and the why of orchestrating meaning from information and discourse throughout our communicative lives
Corporate communication crisis leadership : advocacy and ethics by Ronald C Arnett( )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Addresses the interplay of strategic moments of corporate communication clarity and/or its lack. This work differentiates issue, argument, conflict, and crisis while explicating their related interaction in organizational success or failure. Strategic communication responsiveness attends to a breadth of stakeholder concerns, interests, and demands, recognizing the communication ethics implications of such action. We explicate the performative consequences as British Petroleum in 2010 in the oil spill off the southern coast of the United States repeatedly failed to attend to information that could overt the Deepwater Horizon crisis. The organic connections between and among issue, argument, conflict, and crisis announce the existence or absence of communication ethics in action, which, this work contends, is essential for long-term leadership within a given industry
Dialogic ethics( )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dialogic Ethics offers an impressionistic picture of the diversity of perspectives on this topic. Daily we witness local, regional, national, and international disputes, each propelled by contention over what is and should be the good propelling communicative direction and action. Communication ethics understood as an answer to problems often creates them. If we understand communication ethics as a good protected and promoted by a given set of communicators, we can understand how acts of colonialism and totalitarianism could move forward, legitimized by the assumption that 'I am right.' This volume eschews such a presupposition, recognizing that we live in a time of narrative and virtue contention. We dwell in an era where the one answer is more often dangerous than correct"--

An encyclopedia of communication ethics : goods in contention by Annette Holba( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An Encyclopedia of Communication Ethics: Goods in Contention' complements existing communication ethics scholarship with an examination of 103 scholars who explicitly and implicitly contributed to our understanding of this crucial subject matter. The purpose of this collection is to give an overview of key figures whose work assists our understanding of the development and influence of communication ethics. We selected voices on communication ethics after considering an individual author's contribution to the following coordinates: (1) dialectical and dialogical engagement with other scholars and perspectives; (2) the performative praxis of ethics in the interplay of theory and the public domain; and (3) examination of the connection between history and questions with a constitutive ethical theory offering a connecting response. Dialogical and dialectical engagement, performative praxis of ethics, and the intimate relationship between historical moments and ethical reflection provide a background for understanding author selection for this volume
