Amusing Ourselves To Death, Public Discourse in the Age of Show Business By Neil Postman:
Here are some interesting quotes from this book to chew on today….
“Our languages are our media. Our media are our metaphors. Our metaphors create the content of our culture.”
“For although culture is a creation of speech, it is recreated anew by every medium of communication… Each medium, like language itself, makes possible a unique mode of discourse by providing a new orientation for thought, for expression, for sensibility.”
“The clearest way to see through a culture is to attend to its tools for conversation.”
