About this product
- DescriptionExamining how the 'here and w' of space, territory, the body, are being redefined by new techlogies and how this undoes simplistic versions of the globalization thesis, Paul Virilio demonstrates how techlogy has made inertia the defining condition of modernity. An instantaneous present has replaced space and the sovereignty of territory; everything happens without the need to go anywhere. This book will be a key reference for students and scholars of the latest thinking in social theory.
