DESCRIPTION:

The Surrender of Culture to Technology Neil Postman A great problem of our age is the opposition of art and science, or, more precisely, the implacable hostility between literary intellectuals and physical scientists. Because of its lengthy, intimate, and inevitable relationship with culture, technology does not invite a close examination of its own consequences. Its gifts are not without a heavy cost. Stated in the most dramatic terms, the accusation can be made that the uncontrolled growth of technology destroys the vital sources of our humanity; it creates a culture without a amoral foundation; it undermines certain mental processes and social relations that make human life worth living. Technology, in sum, is both friend and enemy. This book attempts to describe when, how, and why technology became a particularly dangerous enemy. Technopoly brings the problem into sharp relief and opens numerous paths for readers to gain deeper insights into some of the most important issues of our times.
