I-It relationship we treat the other person as a thing to be used, an object to be manipulated; lacks mutuality; high levels of deceit
I-Thou relationship we regard our partner as the very one we are; viewed as created in the image of God & resolve to treat him/her as a valued end rather than a means to our own end - can only do this through dialogue (ethical communication)
