Marshall McLuhan made many predictions in his seminal 1964 publication, Understanding Media: Extensions of Man. Among them were his predictions that the Internet would become a Global Village, making us more interconnected than television, The closing of the gap between consumers and producers, The elimination of space and time as barriers to communication, And The melting of national borders. He is also famously remembered for coining the expression: The medium is the message. These predictions form the genesis of this new volume by Robert Logan – a friend and colleague who worked with McLuhan. Logan argues that these predictions are more pronounced today than when McLuhan first made them in the '60s. In Understanding New Media Logan expertly serves to update Understanding Media to analyze the "new media" McLuhan foreshadowed and yet was never able to analyze or experience. Understanding New Media is designed to reach a new generation of readers as well as appealing to scholars and students who are familiar with Understanding Media. The volume comes with an accompanying website. Visit understandingnewmedia.org For The latest updates on this book.

Herbert Marshall McLuhan (1911-1980) received his PhD in English literature from Cambridge University and taught in the United States and Canada. He is best known, however, as the founding father of media studies. McLuhan was Director of the Center for Culture and Technology at the University of Toronto. Among his ground-breaking works on the psychic and social dimensions of communication technology are The Gutenberg Galaxy (1962); Understanding Media: the Extensions of Man (1964); and The Medium Is the Massage: An Inventory of Effects (1967). Michel Moos' premise is that Marshall McLuhan's importance derives from his achievements in rethinking the entire process of education and training itself, not with his popular fame as media guru, and he analyzes McLuhan's work from the feedback effect his vision continues to provide, rather than from the perspective of interpreting McLuhan's pronouncements on the electronic media. Moos contrasts McLuhan's thoughts with those of such thinkers as Roland Barthes, Fredric Jameson, Friedrich Kittler, Donna Haraway, and Deleuze and Guattari, and renders an updated account of the effect of the mass media on our society and ourselves. The concept "the medium is the message" is the hub around which Marshall McLuhan's explorations revolved. McLuhan's interests ranged from sixteenth-century literature to twentieth-century business practices. With wit and literary flair, he reported the media's influence on society and on the individual. He concluded that we could not escape being transformed by the forces that are hidden deeply within the electronic telecommunications revolution of the sixties. For McLuhan, the new mediums of film, television, and the emerging realm of the digital were the modern equivalent of Gutenberg's printing press. Essays by M. McLuhan. Edited and with a Commentary by M.A. Moos.

During the 1960s, Canadian communications theorist Marshall McLuhan became world famous for his studies of the effects of mass media and technology on modern culture. An academic rebel and a brilliant linguist who loved puns and wordplay, McLuhan published several breakthrough books, including "The Gutenberg Galaxy" (1962) and "Understanding Media: The Extensions of Man" (1964). McLuhanisms like "the global village" and "the medium is the message" have become part of our everyday vocabulary. A number of McLuhan's revolutionary ideas baffled and astonished audiences during his lifetime. Now, in the first decade of the new millennium, he seems to have been an explorer who peered into the future and mapped its contours in living colour. He described the nature and dynamics of the Internet many years before it even existed. A giant on the cultural landscape, McLuhan equipped the planet's current population with the mental charts and maps to learn its way through the maze of what he termed the Age of Information. In this book, award-winning poet and literary critic Judith Fitzgerald presents a fascinating portrait of one of the twentieth century's great thinkers and the guru of media culture. Fitzgerald's own humorous wordplay captures the wise-cracking spirit of McLuhan as she traces the trajectory of his life from his prairie childhood, Cambridge education, happy marriage and conversion to Roman Catholicism, to his teaching years in the United States prior to taking up the position of director of the Centre for Culture and Technology at the University of Toronto.

McLuhan mines the greats of modern literature, such as Yeats, Eliot and Pound, and points the way to richer understanding of their work. Discussion ranges over conventional topics of literary analysis, though never in conventional fashion, because McLuhan deliberately stakes his turf in a manner that draws technology and culture together. As a result, the key terms clich and archetype are not confined to language but are shown to have counterparts in the non-linguistic world.

Walter J. Ongs Standardwerk erweist sich vor dem Hintergrund des heutigen Wandels von Medien, Kultur und Gesellschaft als relevanter denn je: Es bietet in anschaulicher Weise Einblicke in den Charakter mündlicher und schriftlicher Gesellschaften und führt damit vor Augen, welche zentrale Bedeutung der Transformation von Kommunikation für die gesellschaftliche und kulturelle Entwicklung zukommt. Ong zeichnet nach, wie tiefgreifend unsere gesamte Kultur durch den Übergang von der mündlichen zur schriftlichen und dann zur elektronischen Kommunikation, durch die Entwicklung des Schreibens und Druckens umgestaltet worden ist. Dieses Buch zeigt eindrucksvoll die unterschiedliche Bedeutung mündlicher und schriftlicher Kommunikationsweisen und hilft, die ‚zweite Oralität’ einer digitalen Medienumgebung zu verstehen. Es beantwortet Fragen wie: welchen Stellenwert hat gesprochene Sprache in einer schriftbasierten Gesellschaft? Wie haben sich Kulturen durch immer leistungsfähigere Aufzeichnungstechniken verändert? Und in welchem Spannungsverhältnis befinden sich Oralität und Literalität im elektronischen Zeitalter?

Scientific Essay from the year 2012 in the subject Sociology - Communication, University of Minho (Social Sciences), course: Communication Sciences, language: English, abstract: Understanding Media; Extensions of Man is a pioneering and important book of Marshall McLuhan, which was published in 1964 and valued by the authorities, writers, publishers, and Media. It has been protecting its fame and value by those who study and in the field of Media and Communication Science. To be able to understand what Media are and how we are surrounded by them in the 21st century, it is still a vital book as it brings a new and refreshing approach to Media studies. During our read, McLuhan underlines a definite phrase frequently: ‘’For Media, as extensions of our physical and nervous systems... ‘’ Actually, that phrase consists of the main theme of this book. In the book, it is explained that how Media take place in our lives and give a shape to us in certain levels as well as how humanity need and create Media based on their needs. The book is separated into two parts ‘’Part 1’’ and ‘’Part 2’’. Briefly, the author mentions some general information about Media and talks about hot and cold mediums in the first part when he elaborates Media as known as ‘’the Extensions of Man’’ by classifying them such as press, photography, telephone etc in the second part of the book. I am going to review the book by dividing it into two sections because it seems to be easier and better to explain in a clear way. [...]

Medien in ihrer historischen und technischen Vielfalt zu verstehen, das war das Versprechen, das Marshall McLuhan vor uber funfzig Jahren mit Understanding Media gegeben hatte. Unsere digital veranderte Gegenwart erfordert, das Buch heute erneut zu lesen und vor dem Hintergrund aktueller technischer Entwicklungen zu hinterfragen. Gegenstand des Sammelbandes sind u. a. McLuhans Idee von Medien als "Umwelten," seine eigenwillige Sprache und Argumentation sowie seine Annahme der technischen Verfasstheit von Wahrnehmung.

Introducing Digital Communications into Your Medical Practice discusses how electronic medical records and personal health records now digitize patient information and make it accessible for review and easy to update by both doctors and patients. The text emphasizes on how the use of email and the internet will help patients to schedule appointments, access test results and research healthcare options. In addition, topics discussed include stories on how simple everyday telemedicine tools, such as telephones with cameras attached, enable doctors and nurses to carry on conversations with patients who are homebound and need daily monitoring. The text addresses the legislative initiatives that will protect physician and patients from the unauthorized access to medical records as well as discussing how e-prescribing doctor/pharmacist teams and automated databases help patients manage their medications more effectively. Case studies are also provided to illustrate real life situations showing how this technology is deployed and why it is so critical to healthcare.

An essential guide to how the rapid convergence of media and digital technology will unfold over the coming years, and how our conceptions of “programming” and “consumers” will be transformed by the increasing primacy of networked media. Jim Banister provides cogent analyses of how and why certain high-profile “internet” companies have become models; outlines what different kinds of businesses need to do in order to harness the still largely untapped potential of networked media; and shows why the entertainment industry’s efforts to resist the changes in consumer behavior are misguided at best, and doomed at worst. This is a must-read for everyone from business and media professionals to regular consumers.

The Cyborg Experiments analyzes the challenges posed to corporeality by techology. Taking as their starting point the work of the highly influential performance artists Orlan and Stelarc, the essays in this timely and important collection raise a number of questions in relation to new conceptions of embodiment, identity and otherness in the age of new technologies: Has the body become obsolete? Does transgender challenge traditional ideas of agency? Have we always been cyborgs?In addition to highlighting the playful character of digital aesthetics, the contributors investigate ethical issues concerning the ownership of our bodies and the experiments we perform on them. In this way the book explores how humanism, and ideas of "the human", have been placed under increasing scrutiny as a result of new developments in science, media and communications.Contributors:John Appleby, Rachel Armstrong, Fred Botting, Julie Clarke, Gary Hall, Chris Hables Gray, Meredith Jones, Orlan, Mark Poster, Jay Prosser, E.
