This original work takes its place among the recent interdisciplinary work being done at the intersection of philosophy and communication studies.

Bringing together Reichian psychoanalysis, the utopian Marxism of Ernst Bloch, and a rigorous phenomenology of communication following Heidegger and Merleau-Ponty, Ramsey argues that studies of corporeality are a necessary component of a philosophy of communicative praxis directed toward ethical concerns.

Arguing for a return to the body to address questions of ethics, Ramsey demonstrates that the communicative disclosure of worldly possibilities arises out of the conjunction of physical and hermeneutical capabilities of bodies and the material potentiality of situations.

It is against this backdrop, which includes a detailed description of communicative praxis in a world determined by technology, that Ramsey develops the groundwork for an 'ethics of relief'.
