Keywords: Interpersonal communication | proxemics | scale of interpersonal distances | monochronism | polychronism

This paper deals with the new communication perspective, according to which the spatial and temporal dimmension are included in the inter-subjective communication process. It also has in view that the way in which time and space are perceived and represented constitute essential characteristics of each culture. The appearance of proxemics, defined as the study of social space in biocommunication, or as the study of micro-space in interaction, has changed the grid that the communication specialists use to analyze the interdependence between verbal and non-verbal communication. They theoretize on and accept the scale of interpersonal distances, the idea of mobile space vs set space, or that of monochronism vs polychronism in the temporal perception and representation of communication, otherwise all viewed as interaction dimensions.
