Therefore, to study communication involves examining the constructions, apprehension, and use of models of communication themselves – their constructions in common sense, art, and science, their historically specific creations and use: in encounters between parent and child, advertisers and consumer, welfare worker and supplicant, teacher and student. Behind and within these encounters lie models of human contact and interaction.
James Carey, Communication as Culture, p. 32
Not amateurish culture, amateur culture.
Have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.
Rainer Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet
