READING: The Medium is the Massage remains Marshall McLuhan's most popular book, perhaps as influential as Understanding Media. With every technological and social advance, McLuhan's theories reveal how prescient his insights actually proved to be. McLuhan's proclamation that 'the media work us over completely' becomes more evident every day. In his words, 'so pervasive are they in their personal, political, economic, aesthetic, psychological, moral, ethical and social consequences that they leave no part of us untouched, unaffected, or unaltered.'

READING: Culture Is Our Business is Marshall McLuhan's sequel to The Mechanical Bride: Folklore of Industrial Man. Returning to the subject of advertising newly armed with the electric sensibility that informed The Gutenberg Galaxy, Understanding Media, and The Medium Is the Massage, McLuhan takes on the mad men (a play on the ad men of Madison Avenue) of the sixties. Approaching commercial messages as unacknowledged art forms and cultural artifacts, McLuhan delivers a series of probes that pick apart their meanings and underlying values, their paradoxes and paralogisms, and their overt function as persuasion and propaganda. Through humor, satire, and a poetic sensibility, he provides us with a serious exploration of the consumer culture that emerged out of the electronic media environment. In keeping with the participatory ethos of the Internet that McLuhan so clearly anticipated, this is a book that is meant to open the door to further study, reflection, and discussion, and to encourage the development of critical reception on the part of the reader.

READING: Herbert Marshall McLuhan (1911-1980) received his PhD in English literature from Cambridge University and taught in the United States and Canada. He is best known, however, as the founding father of media studies. McLuhan was Director of the Center for Culture and Technology at the University of Toronto. Among his ground-breaking works on the psychic and social dimensions of communication technology are The Gutenberg Galaxy (1962); Understanding Media: the Extensions of Man (1964); and The Medium Is the Massage: An Inventory of Effects (1967). Michel Moos' premise is that Marshall McLuhan's importance derives from his achievements in rethinking the entire process of education and training itself, not with his popular fame as media guru, and he analyzes McLuhan's work from the feedback effect his vision continues to provide, rather than from the perspective of interpreting McLuhan's pronouncements on the electronic media. Moos contrasts McLuhan's thoughts with those of such thinkers as Roland Barthes, Fredric Jameson, Friedrich Kittler, Donna Haraway, and Deleuze and Guattari, and renders an updated account of the effect of the mass media on our society and ourselves. The concept "the medium is the message" is the hub around which Marshall McLuhan's explorations revolved. McLuhan's interests ranged from sixteenth-century literature to twentieth-century business practices. With wit and literary flair, he reported the media's influence on society and on the individual. He concluded that we could not escape being transformed by the forces that are hidden deeply within the electronic telecommunications revolution of the sixties. For McLuhan, the new mediums of film, television, and the emerging realm of the digital were the modern equivalent of Gutenberg's printing press. Essays by M. McLuhan. Edited and with a Commentary by M.A. Moos.


The Book The Medium Is the Monster

The Publisher Athabasca University Press
Release Date2018-04-21
Genre Social Science
Pages 248
ISBN 9781771992244
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Technology, a word that emerged historically first to denote the study of any art or technique, has come, in modernity, to describe advanced machines, industrial systems, and media. McCutcheon argues that it is Mary Shelley’s 1818 novel Frankenstein that effectively reinvented the meaning of the word for modern English. It was then Marshall McLuhan’s media theory and its adaptations in Canadian popular culture that popularized, even globalized, a Frankensteinian sense of technology. The Medium Is the Monster shows how we cannot talk about technology—that human-made monstrosity—today without conjuring Frankenstein, thanks in large part to its Canadian adaptations by pop culture icons such as David Cronenberg, William Gibson, Margaret Atwood, and Deadmau5. In the unexpected connections illustrated by The Medium Is the Monster, McCutcheon brings a fresh approach to studying adaptations, popular culture, and technology.

READING: Leer om niet langer je eigen vijand te zijn en iedere minuut voluit te leven! Veel mensen kennen het gevoel tekort te schieten maar al te goed. Er is niet veel voor nodig horen hoe goed iemand anders is, zelf bekritiseerd worden, een woordenwisseling, een fout op het werk om te denken dat we niet goed genoeg zijn. Dit kan leiden tot zelfveroordeling, relatieproblemen, perfectionisme, eenzaamheid en overwerk. Zelfaanvaarding is een proces dat een leven lang duurt. In Het leven liefhebben door acceptatie beschrijft Tara Brach op een open en eerlijke manier hoe zij haar weg heeft gevonden. Via haar persoonlijke verhaal en dat van haar cliënten en leerlingen, geleide meditaties, gedichten en citaten weet zij tot de kern van het probleem door te dringen. Want pas als je begrijpt hoe het gevoel van onwaardigheid is ontstaan, kun je verbinding maken met je echte ik en jezelf leren vertrouwen en omarmen. Tara Brach is psychotherapeut en toonaangevend lerares op het gebied van mindfulness, emotionele genezing en spiritueel ontwaken. Zij is oprichter van de Insight Meditation Community en geeft zeer drukbezochte workshops in binnen- en buitenland. www.tarabrach.com

The list is international in scope and spans the centuries, from Plato's Republic to Dickens' Great Expectations; this is a stellar resentation, which will round out any education. You have the advantage of not only learning about the authors and the books themselves, but will gain specific commentary on why each title is so important and how its impact had national and international implications. Many of the books chosen for this list have survived centuries and are considered essential for a liberal education.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Internet had kunnen zorgen voor meer democratie en vrijheid, maar heeft vooral ongelijkheid versterkt. In dit messcherpe, hyperactieve betoog toont Keen de beangstigende, rotte plekken van de technologische wereld. Zijn ijzersterke betoog, dat naast uitgebreid eigen onderzoek en interviews gevoed is met werk van academici en journalisten, laat zien hoe we kunnen zorgen dat de keuzes die we maken, beïnvloed door internet, niet meer leiden tot gevaarlijke en vooral onvoorziene gevolgen. Internet heeft de grootste verschuiving sinds de Industriële Revolutie in onze maatschappij in gang gezet. We lijken geen oog te hebben voor de diep negatieve effecten van internet op onze economie, psychologie en cultuur. Andrew Keen schudt ons wakker. Internet is niet het antwoord is ook de niet eerder zo helder geschreven technologische en economische geschiedenis van internet, vanaf het ontstaan in de jaren zestig, via de opkomst van de big data-bedrijven, naar de allesoverheersende trend vooral geld te willen verdienen met elke menselijke activiteit.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Considering texts by Henry James, Gertrude Stein, James Weldon Johnson, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ralph Ellison, Richard Wright, James Agee, and William Carlos Williams, alongside film, painting, music, and popular culture, Mark Goble explores the development of American modernism as it was shaped by its response to technology and an attempt to change how literature itself could communicate. Goble's original readings reinterpret the aesthetics of modernism in the early twentieth century, when new modes of communication made the experience of technology an occasion for profound experimentation and reflection. He follows the assimilation of such "old" media technologies as the telegraph, telephone, and phonograph and their role in inspiring fantasies of connection, which informed a commitment to the materiality of artistic mediums. Describing how relationships made possible by technology became more powerfully experienced with technology, Goble explores a modernist fetish for media that shows no signs of abating. The "mediated life" puts technology into communication with a series of shifts in how Americans conceive the mechanics and meanings of their connections to one another, and therefore to the world and to their own modernity.

READING: In order to be able to communicate and engage with each other via new communicative spaces such as Google Earth, we need to understand as much as possible about how they work as cultural texts: how and why we make them and how we respond to them. Launched in 2005, Google Earth is a virtual globe, map and geographical information program, mapping the Earth by the superimposition of images obtained from satellite imagery and aerial photography. By addressing the sociopolitical issues at stake in society's use of social websites, the author provides the first ever extended close reading of Google Earth as a powerful player in the communication realm of social media. By grounding the context of its military pre-history, its construction, its links to other similar world-making sites such as Google Maps and how it is perceived critically by social scientists, it is imperative to understand how social networking and information sites work in socio and geo-political contexts if society is to use these sites effectively and for the public good.
