Trust and Communication: Foundations of Interconnectivity

Anil Jacob Kunnel

In today’s global and digitalized world, the investigation of relational trust as part of social connections has remained a popular and interdisciplinary academic topic. This book explores the idea of trust as a basic type of information processing that might be as old as human existence but has gained new attention with the emergence of online communication channels. The result is a strategic reconsideration of the brain’s role in the formation of social relationships and a new look at how information might shape our confidence in others.

Anil Jacob Kunnel is a German researcher, writer, and filmmaker. He received his MA in communication science, German philology and English philology and has since dealt with the changing social realities of an interconnected world in both his scientific and artistic work.
