ABSTRACT
The author employs three themes of discussion to point lo a series of challenges to understanding processes of communication between the social sciences and anthropology: a) history and technology in the world-system, b) the problematic question of the so-called "media" and c) a conceptual guide expanded to understand communication as a process of coordination of conduct that presupposes but is not exhausted in semiosis. The text concludes with the identification of a number of challenges in each area and with the proposal of a model for studying the processes of technologically mediated communication.
