Technopoly: The Surrender of Culture to Technology

Technopoly: The Surrender of Culture to Technology Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:
