Communication is a relationship that is qualitatively different from the "properties" of the individuals involved. After defining certain general concepts, the authors present basic characteristics of human communication and illustrate their manifestations and potential pathologies. Then the systemic aspects of human interactions that arise from the patterning of specific characteristics of communication are exemplified by the analysis of Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? They then extend it to psychotherapeutic double binds and the technique of "prescribing the symptom." In conclusion, they postulate about man's communication with reality in the existential sense.

Summary: This book deals with the age-old questions of persistence and change in human affairs. More particularly, it is concerned with how problems arise and are perpetuated in some instances, and resolved in others. It examines how, paradoxically, common sense and logical approaches often fail and in doing so compound an existing problem, while seemingly 'illogical' and 'unreasonable' actions succeed in producing the desired change.
