mediational averment” by Antonio Sandu and Elena Unguru, published by TRITONIC in 2014, is a
high level transdisciplinary lesson about transactional justice, restorative justice and deliberative
alternative to classical (retributive and distributive). Antonio Sandu is Professor at the University

Iasi (Romania). The main interest of the author include ethics, bioethics, social assistance, social
philosophy. He is the author of five books in Social Philosophy and Applied Ethics, more than 8
articles in scientific journals indexed by Thomson Reuters and over 20 other scientific articles. Elena
Unguru is researcher in the fields of law, social work, sociology, communication, appreciative inquiry
in Socio-Human Research Center Lumen from Iasi- Romania. We are led, naturally and
professionally, on the sinuously road from conflict to communication also denoted by the
establishment of the public sphere as social reality born of meeting and acceptance of the otherness, of
individuality asserting in public space, postulating the universality of human nature as human rights.
Starting from the Habermas’ idea of communication power as a form of expression in contemporary
society, the author believes that communicative action codes a power strategy based on consensus.
Power is soft, seductive, and inter-mediate linguistic and cultural relations. The chosen theme by the
authors analyze the communication mediation model based on the values of social justice, equity and
charity, assuming an exercise of the integration of the otherness, of perceiving the other as partner.

The study finds, supports and explores some of the uncertainties surrounding the core of the
concept of communicative instance. Examine joints concept and try articulating it as a useful tool in
understanding, describing and explaining the phenomenon of communication.
Method is one meta-analytical. The main conclusion that emerges from draining and
dropping the halo of doubt and uncertainty is the principle of communicative instance: within each
communicative event occurs and remain an instance of communication, understood as a mutual
computational and decisional human device of co-building, co-organization, co-implementation and
co-management of communication processes.
