LAPC is hosted this week by a guest host again: Biasini. She asks for our understanding of “communication”.
The first thing coming to my mind is the famous statement by the was an Austrian-American family therapist, psychologist, communication theorist, and philosopher Paul Watzlawick. He said, “you can not not communicate”. It’s not a typo doubling the word “not”. It’s simple. Whenever people come together they communicate. They communicate by their clothing, posture, mimic, and gesture – the body language.
Besides direct (oral or body language) communication between humans, we also have signs, i.e. traffic signs, lighthouses, writings, and so on.
