Description

This ecology of ethics seeks to balance the needs of the individual and those of the various levels of community. Community over Chaos develops a common ground for ethical judgements about communication using an ecological model. Mackin's ecological model assumes that each of us is a communicative system operating within larger communicative systems that together form our communicative ecosystem. His model offers a way of analyzing ethical problems in communication, including both long-standing problems such as white lies and new problems such as flaming on the Internet.
