Everybody is talking about the need for radical change, and some are even starting to see solutions in each field: politics, medicine, economics, society, etc. However - and most of us forget - "No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it." (Einstein) To solve the problems, we have to move to the next level of consciousness and communication. Barnett Pearce (1989) proposes a stage model on the evolution of communication in a multicultural society. According to the model, the form of communication in the social evolutionary process develops itself over four levels: (a) “Monocultural communication”; (b) “Ethnocentric communication”; (c) “Modernistic communication”; (d) “Cosmopolitan communication”.

The Reflective, Facilitative, and Interpretive Practice of the Coordinated Management of Meaning: Making Lives, Making Meaning is a collection of practical applications of the Coordinated Management of Meaning (CMM). In addition to using CMM the contributors have another bond in common. They are all connected to Fielding Graduate University, where the majority of them completed their doctoral studies, working with Barnett Pearce, one of the co-creators of CMM, with Vernon Cronen.
