The Discipline of Communicology
Communicology is the science of human communication. One of the Human Science disciplines, it uses the logic based research methods of semiotics and phenomenology to explicate human consciousness and behavioral embodiment as discourse within global culture. Cognate subdiscipline applications include: (1) Art Communicology, (2) Clinical Communicology, (3) Media Communicology, and (4) Philosophy of Communicology.
Communicology is the study of human discourse in all of its semiotic and phenomenological manifestations of embodied consciousness and practice in the world of other people and their environment. As a young discipline in Human Science research, Communicology is the critical study of discourse and practice, especially the expressive body as mediated by the perception of cultural signs and codes. Communicology uses the logic based research method of semiotic phenomenology in which the expressive body discloses cultural codes, and cultural codes shape the perceptive body—an ongoing, dialectical, complex helix of twists and turns constituting the reflectivity, reversibility, and reflexivity of consciousness and experience.
