Abstract

How is digitalization changing journalism and our public sphere? What role does the expert play now that knowledge can be downloaded? What is it to think and work in a world in which technology has become our second nature? Since Google has become the most important way to gather information, the role of knowledge in our societies has fundamentally changed. Exploring the role of digital platforms such as Google, Twitter and Facebook, this engaging book maps out the knowledge landscape of today, delivering an overview of the most important debates and comparing the discussions of the digital era with the ones of our industrial past. Calling for a more active role of the human towards technology, it also serves as a philosophically informed introduction to academic debates, and delivers an inspiring reading of the newly discovered French philosopher Gilbert Simondon. Engaging with the social forces that unfold with digitalization, this book finds a silent revolution.
