COMMUNICATION AND REASON: THE CRISIS OF OUR CIVILIZATION

Abstract

Author(s): Chris OSEGENWUNE

The evolution of modern society has placed enormous responsibilities on the shoulders of managers of men and women requiring that, we transcend the modern and medieval challenges for effective communication to achieve unity in diversity. This condition is necessitated with the increase of multiplicity of human interests and aspirations. The collapse of ideological forces built on logocentric Greek metaphysics and epistemology glorified rationality and reason above any other transcendental structures of man. The inevitability of arrogance, imposition and supremacy appropriated to reason and rationality made man to become a slave to structures of bureaucratic red tapism that have affected our intellect. The mission of bureaucracy is to achieve efficiency but this goal has been frustrated by the application of reason as the ultimate legislator of results. To this end the communitarians have suggested rational consensus to achieve order and social stability in decision making. This paper therefore addresses the basic problems of rational consensus through communication.
