Practical diversity. Why a socio-technical perspective on communication must lead to standardisation and a practical perspective might prevent it ; with illustrations from the field of science communication

Abstract : The widespread understanding of human communication as a socio-technical activity and the equally widespread commitment to diversity do not add up, this essay argues. It is suggested that the classical notion of praxis offers a wider framework that might serve to delimit standardisation and further diversity. Illustrations are drawn from the discourse on science communication, and particular attention is paid to challenges that relate to the role of science in knowledge societies.
