Arnett (communication and English) and Arneson (communication) both of Duquesne University offer a way to find hope in what they call the "mud of everyday life." They recognize that we live in a cynical age, but they suggest that we can still achieve civility and even thoughtful dialogue, by insisting that we return to a commitment to acknowledge the common good. They argue that we can actually get along with others and create relationships by using dialogic civility, which requires respect for topics, others, multiple perspectives, and the given historical moment.
