9780679745402: Technopoly (Vintage)

In this witty, often terrifying work of cultural criticism, the author of Amusing Ourselves to Death chronicles our transformation into a Technopoly: a society that no longer merely uses technology as a support system but instead is shaped by it--with radical consequences for the meanings of politics, art, education, intelligence, and truth.

Book Description Vintage March 1993, 1993. Trade. Book Condition: New. The history of ideas is all too often discussed without reference to broader social and environmental factors. This book won't let us do that. It represents a creative attempt to show us how technology -- computers, modern medicine, convenient travel -- has changed our very hearts and minds. Postman explores how, for example, the ubiquity of pictures in the modern world has inevitably altered our responses to religious images, how ever-spreading sciences have created our silly faith in experts, how the modern achievements with numbers have led to a preoccupation with quantity (witness our love for statistics and polls) at the expense of quality, how mass advertising has made almost all public discourse trivial.
