Riassunto: Leopards in the Temple explores the ways in which exposure to electronic environments influences cultural interpretations of self and otherness in contemporary American life. Philosophers of technology such as Jacques Ellul, Martin Heidegger, Herbert Marcuse, Hans Jonas, and Hubert Dreyfus have taken various approaches to interpreting the consequences of technological revolutions. With the exception of Jonas and Heidegger, critiques of technology's influence at the ontological level are relatively rare. Addressing this issue, Steven Carter investigates the ways in which technology, media entertainment, and advertising are in the process of recycling metaphysical values in postmodern society. In this revised edition, he focuses specifically on marginality as a world wide literary phenomenon. Thought provoking and original, Leopards in the Temple represents a timely contribution to the study of technology, popular culture, and postmodern studies.
L'autore: Steven Carter is the author of five books of literary and cultural criticism, including Bearing Across: Studies in Literature and Science (University Press of America, 2002). In 1989 he was awarded the Schachterle Prize by the National Society for Literature and Science. In 2001 he became the only two-time winner of Italy's coveted Nuove Lettere International Poetry and Literature Prize. A former Senior Fulbright Fellow at two Polish universities, Professor Carter teaches at California State University, Bakersfield.
