Exploring Technology and Social Space


Volume: 1

October 1997 | 231 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
This volume offers a critical, philosophical and epistemological framework to understand better our relations to technology and social space.

John MacGregor Wise: focuses on the burgeoning technological assemblage of communication and information characterized by the Internet and cyberspace; draws on the philosophy of Deleuze and Guattari and the actor-network sociology of Latour; and brings together diverse examples from cyborg films, television, museums, cyberspace and debates over a new world information and communication order. In the last chapter, the possibilities and limitations of human agency within the new wired world are described.
