The course aims to analyze some fundamental themes of practice of communication, the concept of ethics of communication and the role of the latter in society. Particular attention will be given to the relationship between media communication and the information model that supports its functioning. The course tries to make students aware of the main theoretical issues of communication and, through the development of a critical methodology, about its ethical implications.
FILOSOFIA DELLA COMUNICAZIONE (I) I MODULO
The course aims at following a close examination of some themes and fundamental problems of communication practices. It develops a critical reflection on the paradigms that dominate the average understanding of communication, especially the information model. The course will make
students aware about main theoretical questions of communication. The character of the course is monographic and will focus on a theme relevant to communication theory.
ETICA E DEONTOLOGIA DELLA COMUNICAZIONE (P) II MODULO
The course intends to critically analyse the concept of the ethics of communication and its role in society, focusing on the relationship between (mass)media communication and human “person”, who is both user, receiver, and “manager” (but, more and more frequently, a “bare gear”) of the communication process and the technologies employed. The purpose of the course is not only to provide students with conceptual grounds and critical methodology which would make them even more aware of the ethical implications of communication (with regard to its key players and means involved in), but also to allow the acquisition of a language and skills so as to be able to deal with ethical challenges arising from an interconnected and multicultural world.
