Description

What should we think about the digital revolution in information technology? Can there be 'communities' in cyberspace? Should we control freedom of expression on the internet? The Internet: A Philosophical Inquiry offers the first concise, accessible and stimulating philosophical exploration of questions such as these and more. Developing many of the themes presented in his highly successful radio series, The Silicon Society , Gordon Graham guides us carefully between the warnings of the neo-Luddites and the bright hopes of the technophiles. Bringing broad cultural concerns to bear on the internet, The Internet: A Philosophical Inquiry presents the reader with a highly accessible and informative discussion of the internet and democracy, scrutiny of the supposed advantages of email, and a fascinating discussion of what philosophy can tell us about virtual reality. Essential reading for anyone with an interest in the implications of new technology, Gordon Graham takes us to the heart of questions none of us can afford to ignore.
