Anyone know any good philosophy books on communication

Any books in line with the Catholic faith, meaning to avoid false modern philosophy ideals and whatnot. I’m trying to form myself to be speak to others better.

That’s a rather huge question.

Perhaps just start with the CCC’s notion of what communication is first?

communication…
communion…
com+union…
with - unity…
What is unity?
Three In One?
Oral Tradition?
Transmission of the Faith?
Written Tradition?
The development of language over the past 2000+ years?

The list goes on…

HTH provide some food for thought…

Just one other thing…

There’s nothing like the present moment…

Going cross-eyed over a bunch of “Thy’s” and “Thou arts”… is like… why?

No one uses those old idioms anymore. So it would sound pretty strange if henceforth and prithee I started speagking thus to thou in answer to thine selfsame question… to speaketh a fairer judgement unto thee by race wouldst not I best forego to speak in the vulgar tongue?

Or I could just talk to you like a normal human being, who’s actually still alive and breathing…

That’s not to say there isn’t value in dead languages, as there is…

But you need o discern what you want to learn by language and communication… in a modern sense, computers communicate very effectively using modern languages… so, if you’re not a rationalist, you might want to throw your computer out the window… ; )

So what do you mean by a “modernist philosophy” with respect to communication in the Catholic Church?

There are a lot of false teachings among the modern philosophers, so I want to avoid them.
