Abstract [en]

Communication helps defining our identity, acknowledges us and helps us situate ourself in the social space we live in. It is difficult to imagine being a human being and not being able to communicate in some way or another. Communication is the tool we have for exchanging thoughts and feelings, but what demarcates communication? Is communication always between communicating parties directed towards each other, reciprocally exchanging ideas, or is it still communication if one person talks and another one is in the same room not paying attention. A part of the same problem is if it is possible to communicate across time. Can Beethoven communicate something to me - or is it possible to imagine that Beethoven and I actually communicate interactively in some way or another. Does communication require reciprocal interaction or does one-way communication exist? Is both monologue and dialogue parts of communication? Other questions in this respect is whether communication can have different quality, and to what extent it is possible to transfer our intended meaning in communication. These questions will be elaborated on from a pragmatic point of view and discussed in the light of education and aesthetics.
