How is digitalization changing journalism and our public sphere?
What role does the expert play now that knowledge can be
downloaded? What is it to think and work in a world in which
technology has become our second nature? Since Google has become
the most important way to gather information, the role of knowledge
in our societies has fundamentally changed. Exploring the role of
digital platforms such as Google, Twitter and Facebook, this
engaging book maps out the knowledge landscape of today, delivering
an overview of the most important debates and comparing the
discussions of the digital era with the ones of our industrial
past. Calling for a more active role of the human towards
technology, it also serves as a philosophically informed
introduction to academic debates, and delivers an inspiring reading
of the newly discovered French philosopher Gilbert Simondon.
Engaging with the social forces that unfold with digitalization,
this book finds a silent revolution.
