To take a constitutive view of communication means to presume that communication, or interaction, is a process of meaning creation or social construction. The fundamental idea of constitution has had enormous influence on the field of communication, especially in the areas of interpersonal communication and organizational communication. An important implication of a constitutive view is that communication is assumed to be the basic building block for social entities, such as personal relationships and organizations. This entry provides a brief history of the origins of the constitutive view, explains its basic assumptions, and examines examples of applications in interpersonal and organizational communication.
