WHY TECHNOLOGY IS UNDERMINING OUR CREATIVITY, AND HOW FACE-TO-FACE CONVERSATION CAN HELP US GET IT BACK
An engaging look at how we have taken flight from conversation due to social media, texting and email, and how it's damaging our relationships, creativity and productivity.
Preeminent author and researcher Sherry Turkle has been studying digital culture for over thirty years. Long an enthusiast for its possibilities, here she investigates a troubling consequence: at work, at home, in politics and in love, we find ways around conversation, tempted by the possibilities of a text or an email in which we don't have to look, listen or reveal ourselves.
We are becoming addicted to connection over conversation, and this fact is stopping us from engaging in real debate, sharing our real opinions and reacting to our family, friends, partners and colleagues in a way that either encourages necessary conflict, or diffuses it. We are shying away from the real politics of the public square and heading for a subdued, online version of ourselves.
Based on five years of research and interviews in homes, schools and the workplace, Turkle argues in RECLAIMING CONVERSATION that we have come to a better understanding of where our technology can and cannot take us and that the time is right to reclaim conversation. The most human - and humanising - thing that we do.

"Sherry Turkle is a singular voice in the discourse around technology." --Jonathan Franzen in The New York Times
"This is her third book on the subject. Her general thesis (that human values and humane activities are threatened by our gadgets) is consistent. What changes is the focus. This time she finds that it is real face-to-face conversation that is vanishing like mist on the bright morning of Silicon Valley's ascendancy." --The Times

Neu Titel auf Lager, Neu, versand am selben Werktag er Bestellung bis 16 Uhr, - Renowned media scholar Sherry Turkle investigates how a flight from conversation undermines our relationships, creativity, and productivity - and why reclaiming face-to-face conversation can help us regain lost ground. We live in a technological universe in which we are always communicating. And yet we have sacrificed conversation for mere connection. Preeminent author and researcher Sherry Turkle has been studying digital culture for over thirty years. Long an enthusiast for its possibilities, here she investigates a troubling consequence: at work, at home, in politics, and in love, we find ways around conversation, tempted by the possibilities of a text or an email in which we don't have to look, listen, or reveal ourselves. We develop a taste for what mere connection offers. The dinner table falls silent as children compete with phones for their parents' attention. Friends learn strategies to keep conversations going when only a few people are looking up from their phones. At work, we retreat to our screens although it is conversation at the water cooler that increases not only productivity but commitment to work. Online, we only want to share opinions that our followers will agree with - a politics that shies away from the real conflicts and solutions of the public square. The case for conversation begins with the necessary conversations of solitude and self-reflection. They are endangered: these days, always connected, we see loneliness as a problem that technology should solve. Afraid of being alone, we rely on other people to give us a sense of ourselves, and our capacity for empathy and relationship suffers. We see the costs of the flight from conversation everywhere: conversation is the cornerstone for democracy and in business it is good for the bottom line. In the private sphere, it builds empathy, friendship, love, learning, and productivity. But there is good news: we are resilient. Conversation cures. Based on five years of research and interviews in homes, schools, and the workplace, Turkle argues that we have come to a better understanding of where our technology can and cannot take us and that the time is right to reclaim conversation. The most human-and humanizing-thing that we do. The virtues of person-to-person conversation are timeless, and our most basic technology, talk, responds to our modern challenges. We have everything we need to start, we have each other. 448 pp. Englisch. Codice articolo INF1000040776
