Television is a central dimension of our everyday lives and yet its meaning and its potency varies according to our individual circumstances, mediated by the social and cultural worlds we inhabit. In Television and Everyday Life , Roger Silverstone explores the enigma of television and how it has found its way so profoundly and intimately into the fabric of our everyday lives. His investigation unravels its emotional and cognitive, spatial, temporal and political significance. Drawing on a wide range of literature, from psychoanalysis to sociology and from geography to cultural studies, he constructs a theory of the medium which locates it centrally within the multiple realities and discourses of everyday life. Television emerges from these arguments as a fascinating, complex and contradictory medium, but in the process many of the myths that surround it are exploded. Television and Everday Life presents a radical new approach to the medium, one that both challenges received wisdoms and offers a compellingly original view of the place of television in everyday life.
