Abstract

Communication is central to our daily lives and is the core of the network of relationships among people. As such it is for sociology a key issue in that broad debate that seeks to define the diverse and complex changes of social reality. Starting from the assumption that communication is one of the constituent dimensions of social relations, the thesis argued in this paper is that in the theories developed by the founding fathers of sociology, we can trace ideas and conceptualizations on which, from the beginning of the twentieth century, the most important theories on communication and the media have been founded, and through which, among other things, it’s possible to understand the latest transformations generated by the advent of digital and network technologies.
