Jahrbuch für Wirtschaftsgeschichte 2015; 56(1); 163–195 Harm G. Schröter Communication Theory in Business History Abstract: Several theories on communication are tested on trial to what extent they can provide additional insight in business history. All are focused on one known example, the relation between the dyestuff cartel and its Japanese com- petitors in the interwar period. Can theory extend the limits of our knowledge even in well known cases? While the classification of types of information trans- fer according to Chun Wei Choo provides

LINGUISTICS AND COMMUNICATION THEORY Norbert Wiener refuses to admit "any fundamental opposition between the problems of our engineers in measuring communication and the problems of our philologists".1 There appear indeed striking coinciden- ces and convergences between the latest stages of linguistic analysis and the approach to language in the mathematical theory of communication. Since each of these two disciplines is concerned, although in different and quite autonomous ways, with the same domain of verbal communication, a close contact between them has

W. Timothy Coombs 5  Situational crisis communication theory: Influences, provenance, evolution, and prospects Abstract: Situational crisis communication theory (SCCT) is a cognitive-based, pre- scriptive theory designed specifically to explain the use of optimal and sub-optimal crisis responses during organizational crises. This chapter explores the origins, evolu- tion, and future prospects for SCCT. The origin details the intellectual traditions and practical concerns that influenced the development of SCCT. Social science theory should not be static. New

WAYNE Ν. THOMPSON COMMUNICATION, COMMUNICATION THEORY, AND RHETORIC Communication and rhetoric, according to two panelists at a Central States speech convention, are synonymous or nearly so. Both of these men were mature, respected, generally knowledgable scholars, but in this instance their responses, so the writer believes, were not based upon careful thought. The point of the story is that an essay elaborating on differences between commu- nication theory and rhetoric is no belaboring of the obvious. On the contrary, a need exists for a detailed

3. Communication: Theories and Models 3.0. Introduction - Abstract In this chapter a review of communication concepts and models is presented. The reader is introduced to some fundamental views of communication. The relationship between man and his environment is viewed in terms of communication; that is, through the amount of information passed and thus communication performed. A mes- sage is meaningful to us if it is conveyed in an organized manner. The more obvious the organization the easier it is to understand the message, but the less information

1 CLINICAL SCIENCE AND COMMUNICATION THEORY (1964) Our forefathers simply communicated with each other and took the process for granted, but as children of our age we no longer are content to exercise our faculties and to develop our skills; we have to know how things work. The engineers who developed radio, television, photo- graphy, motion pictures, recording devices and computers laid the foundations for what today has become the communications industry. But this technological ingenuity was not the only element that contri- buted to progress. The

C H A P T E R 1 8 TOWARD A COMMUNICATION THEORY OF MODERNIZATION A SET OF CONSIDERATIONS DANIEL LERNER I N T H E CITY of Teheran, in 1954, there were 36 registered "film companies." Only one of these companies had actually produced, dis- tributed, and exhibited any films j the other 35 had yet to complete production of their first film. How did this odd situation come about? The sequence of events begins at Teheran University, where the old traditions of Iranian learning and the new demands of Iranian modernization are locked in a deadly struggle, from

CHAPTER XVII SOME ASPECTS OF COMMUNICATION THEORY Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom, and with all thy getting, get under­ standing. "Proverbs, IV., 7. Old Testament" 17.1 Introduction A number of quite interesting problems have arisen in the study of various methods used for conveying information from one source to another. Not only are there the many questions involved in transmitting and receiving with minimal error, or, as in the case of computing machines, with no error, but there are also the formidable questions of data storage
