Models of Communication

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Communication models, some famous and widely influential, have represented and guided communication theories and their application since the field's early days. Topics covered here include the definition of models as translations of conceptions or theories into systemic forms that are representative of a focal real domain, in some way and for some purpose; the nature, construction, and evaluation of models; and the three main types of models: models of reality (diagrams, etc.), models of data (structural equation models, etc.), and models of possible worlds (simulations, etc.). The mutual influences among model, theory, and received reality and across the three types of models are highlighted.
