Abstract

This paper, as an attempt at espousing the view that human communication reveals the essence of man, constitutes a contribution to the on-going philosophical discussions on understanding the meaning and the nature of man. The paper examines the idea of human communication from a philosophical perspective. It particularly explores the concepts of language, symbols and meaning as determinants of human existence through communication, and concludes that the whole essence of human interactions and attempts at persuasion of individuals by individuals, groups, institutions etc lie in the manipulation of meanings through symbols, codes and signs as constituents of language.
