Summary Purpose
This article critiques corporate public relations from the perspective of philosopher Alasdair MacIntyre. 

It uses an essay format.

The essay is critical of proposed ‘communitarian-style’ initiatives to take advantage of what are referred to by some public relations theorists as ‘consumer communities’.

This is the most extensive application of MacIntyre’s ideas to public relations.
