“Dialogue vs. Narcissism”
Tony Osborne, associate professor of communication arts at Gonzaga University, explores the impact of contemporary communication on democracy. Presented by the Greater Gonzaga Guild. Osborne will contrast communication today – which, in all its forms, he says tends to be boisterous, belligerent, factually incorrect, and disrespectful – to the ideal of dialogue. Dialogue, Osborne notes, is a concept that dates back to Socrates and lies at the heart of humanism and Jesuit education. Dialogue also is foundational to democracy, Osborne will assert, and provides an ideal standard from which to critique today’s communicative practices. Open to the public.
