Dialogic Ethics offers an impressionistic picture of the diversity of perspectives on this topic. Daily we witness local, regional, national, and international disputes, each propelled by contention over what is and should be the good propelling communicative direction and action. Communication ethics understood as an answer to problems often creates them. If we understand communication ethics as a good protected and promoted by a given set of communicators, we can understand how acts of colonialism and totalitarianism could move forward, legitimized by the assumption that “I am right.” This volume eschews such a presupposition, recognizing that we live in a time of narrative and virtue contention. We dwell in an era where the one answer is more often dangerous than correct.

Table of Contents
Dialogic Ethics exposes the domain of communication and rhetoric as the art of discourse. Moreover, it extends the conceptual sphere of ethicality, forming the social design of personal morality, to the customary participation in the world of dialogic competences and practices that integrate human and non-human agents with multivoicedness of nature and culture, both interpersonally and intersubjectively.”
“Arnett and Cooren bring together communication ethics scholars from around the world to remind us of the communicative potential of dialogue in all facets of human engagement. This collection has a range of currency from the world political climate to interpersonal considerations. The collection is philosophically rich and enormously practical for anyone interested in how dialogic ethics can make the world a better place.”
“This visionary volume, Dialogic Ethics, offers an understanding of communication ethics that is both 'social' and 'responsive' to Others. The creative thread woven throughout the text brings classic and contemporary scholarship on dialogic ethics into conversation, offering a sense of 'hope' in this historical moment and pointing toward pragmatic action for the good of the human community.”
“What is the Call, the natality, the ‘truth-telling’ and the hope in a dialogue? How do we in dialogues and communication step aside in order for the Other and for the Phenomenon to speak for her-, him- or itself? This book gives impressive reflections on and a lush bouquet of insights into dialogic ethics and mystery of the dialogical moment. It is a must-read for students as well as an inspiration for scholars and researchers in philosophy and communication studies. In short: It gives hope for a human and dialogical future.”
“This volume provides relevant applications and situates dialogic ethics as central to living with others in a world of virtue and narrative contention. Arnett and Cooren bring together communication ethics scholars from around the world to remind us of the communicative potential of dialogue in all facets of human engagement. This collection has a range of currency from the world political climate to interpersonal considerations. The collection is philosophically rich and enormously practical. Whether a scholar, student, practitioner, worker, or philanthropist, this collection of essays offers insightful and rich contour for one to think about dialogue, dialogic ethics, and how we decide to live in the world side by side with others.”
