Abstract

The aim of this paper is to demonstrate that a socialist ethics should be discussed within the epistemological thinking in general and in the field of communication, in particular. Intends to do so, bringing to the debate authors who point the deep linkage between the theoretical, methodological, historical and political elements of any conceivable epistemology. That does not mean neglecting the relatively autonomous development of scientific knowledge, but to emphasize precisely this relative character. Finally, careful not to blur the boundaries between these fields, the study aims to (re)open a dialogue between them.
