Chapter 1.4.2: Kinds of Space

We consider four different kinds of space:

PHYSICAL SPACE: the realm of our immediate senses of touch, sight, smell, sound, mass, temperature and balance.

MENTAL SPACE: the realm of our emotions, dreams, plans, and ideas. Though based on the concrete existence of brains and nervous systems, we don’t think of mental space as being solid or tangible.

SOCIAL SPACE: the realm of mental and physical relationships between and among people and objects.

COMMUNICATION SPACE: the union of mental, physical and social space presented through specific channels such as photographs, videos, posters, music and fashion.

Professional Communicators are concerned specifically with this last kind of space, as their job is to move people to action or at least generate reactions based on manipulation and stimulation of emotions and relationships.
