The phenomenology of communication represents a starting point in the union of consciousness and experience, analogue and digit, expression and perception, person and lived-world, rhetoric and ethic, constitute human communication. A phenomenological definition of communication requires that analysis proceed through a phenomenological description, reduction, interpretation. This analysis thus far has taken up the general issue of fact versus value, consisting in a subdivision into intention and punctuation on the factual side, and convention and legitimation on the value side. It has treated of the relationships among intention and metaphysics, punctuation and epistemology, convention and logic, and legitimation and axiology.
