Communication and Common Good

Lorenzo Cantoni,  Communication and Common Good, Philosophical News, 6/2013

In this article the close relationship between common good and communication – especially verbal communication – is presented and discussed. Four paths, in particular, are explored to shed light onto this relationship: (i) their common linguistic roots; (ii) language as the very condition for the common good to be discussed; (iii) language as part of the common good; and (iv) language as a powerful image of what the common good is. At the end of the article, (v) a brief reflection on the Allegory of the Good Government by Ambrogio Lorenzetti helps to further clarify the studied connection.
