Summary
"Cutting through the hype about how the Internet is revolutionizing the ways we relate to one another, Michele A. Willson offers a wide-ranging investigation of community in the digital age. Technically Together takes the reader on a tour of the key writings on community and technology and the current debates that surround them to provide a clear understanding of the challenges new technologies present for theories of social interaction. Drawing on the political and social theory of a broad range of theorists from Charles Taylor and Jean-Luc Nancy to Mark Poster, and the most influential minds in the philosophy of technology from Marshall McLuhan to Martin Heidegger, Technically Together offers new ways of thinking about digitally mediated community."--Jacket
