The Metaphysics of Communications Overload

This paper enquires into the nature of the act of communication

between two or more persons. It proposes that such acts are best conceived of

as moral, as related to the performative consequences of the acts in question.

Given this, the paper then asks what applicability phrases like ‘overload’ might

have, and whether quantitative techniques have a role other than as a heuristic

in understanding and designing tools for the control of communication overload

between people.
