The Human Conversation - 2022 Fall PL 200

Why do we talk? What is the purpose of human communication, whether in speech, writing, texting, or artistic expression? Although much human conversation has involved the sharing of basic descriptive information, humans have also given expression to hopes, dreams, speculations, beliefs, and deeply considered ideas. Thus, from its very beginnings, the human conversation has been a mix of what has been called “logos” –logical and practical truths, and “mythos” –intuitive, artistic, religious, and poetic truths. Both conversations are essential, and both communicate essential truths for human existence. Welcome to the human conversation!
