Dr. Fisher was my professor in the early 70's and on my Masters Committee. Communication Theory was a Primary Topic and Grad Students in the Department were expected by the Faculty to have a substantial grasp of "Theory". PhD Candidates, especially, were expected to articulate this understanding in their Comprehensive Exams. This was not considered by any of these bright grad students to be a breeze, far from it, especially as we watched the first couple of candidates to take their Exams, to fail their Comps the first time around. We believed their failures were because of inadequate grasp of "Theory".

This book carries forth the foundation of his thinking as I fought to understand as a student his Communication Theory Class (I do not remember thest as I had been inspired. The best thing about this book is that the content has had a profound influence on my thinking, on my ability to understand my world. This book is a Treasure. B. Aubrey Fisher was an amazing thinker and scholar. Why? Because: How many people in our lives influence our way of learning, thinking and understanding to become an inherent part of our way of seeing the world; and yet, promote the idea of oname of the course). Yes, I did "fight" to "understand" the concepts he explained, not because I feared my Comps, which I did; and not because it was important to me to pass my Exams, which it was, (even if the pressure was heavier on the PhD Candidates than on the Masters Candidates). Dr. Fisher's Passion for "Theory" electrified my interest in the subject. He inspired my passion to learn the subject, as he taught it, because his ideas seemed profound. I felt I was in the presence of a Great Mind when sitting in his classes, as I know many of my colleagues did. (To set the record straight, I was not the best grad student, nor the worst, and Dr. Fisher probably thought of me as a hard working, but average grad student. He died so young, on the Racquetball Court, a few years after I was his student at The University of Utah. Before he died, at such a young age, in his forties, I had the good fortune of being able to teach an undergraduate, upper division class"Communication Theory". The textbook I chose was this fantastic book, "Perspectives on Human Communication" by B. Aubrey Fisher. It was heaven for me, and it seemed that the Content of Fisher's book and his clear explanation, inspired many, if not most of the students for whom the course was required for graduation, upper division Speech Communication Students and Art Majors. Fisher's ideas provoke thought and promote discussion. Open mindedness and the need to continue to challenge my own thinking, even if that means abandoning previous ideas that I once assumed to be true, are among the treasures I learned from Dr. Fisher. I cannot express adequately my deep appreciation for what I learned from Dr. Fisher. His mind was beautiful to me, because his thinking lit a fire inside me to seek to learn and understand so much of the every day dynamics of human communication, from the most personal to the political. I love this book!
This was a college textbook for an upper level communication theories class I took in 1977. In many ways the author stays in gray areas. She simply explains different theories and sometimes how they overlap. As a young 21 year old I found the text very hard to grasp and received my first B in college.(Instead of an A)

Reading the book now, and being an author myself, I understand why I found the text so perplexing. Fisher is most likely one who stays on the sidelines and observes. In doing so the reader has a difficult time being persuaded to understand how a "pragmatist" for example ses and addresses life situations.

Much like a method actor, in order for the reader or "viewer" to understand what is being presented, the actor chooses to put him or herself into the shoes and head of the one whose thought process they are attempting to replicate.

Though I am using run on sentences here. My point is, that in reading this book the actor must unfortunately be the reader. Thus, making it much harder to grasp the material. There needs to be more connectedness!
B. Aubrey Fisher was one of the most respected theorists in Communication. He (not she) published work in pragmatics before others started to do so in the early 80's. This book is no longer in print--Aub died unexpectedly in his mid 40s so this book has not received the re-edits it deserves. This is a classic and while some may find it a hard read, his material on perspectives still holds true today. This book is, in my mind, more of a graduate level book, not undergraduate level.
