Omtale Interpersonal Divide
Interpersonal Divide: The Search for Community in a Technological Age seeks to answer the question: have media and technology created a social gap, eroding our sense of community? Michael Bugeja tackles this question by taking a broad and interdisciplinary approach, incorporating a number of different viewpoints-including global, ethical, philosophical, corporate, pop cultural, and social perspectives. This book traces media history in a comprehensive manner to show how changes resulting from the technology revolution of the 1990s have impacted society. With its emphasis on community and the impact of media over-consumption, Interpersonal Divide evaluates how, when and where we use media and technology, and what, why and to whom people communicate. Finally, Bugeja offers solutions for increasing the sense of community and using media and technology to enhance rather than obliterate interpersonal relationships.
