Abstract

The present article composes a course of inquiries about community, its social formsand its possibilities of communication. Our main concern is pondering over new waysof making social contact when the present time seems haunted by (mighty new and old)insecurities, such as the ever growing depletion of natural resources and the collapseof media and communication patterns hitherto in force. In front of the process ofexhausting human resources and at the highest pitch of technological development wecan discern dialogical shaped moulds in new emerging social forms and new patternsof message production within a global background wherein affectionate an sensitivebonds appear as the chief power of coehesion.
