- DescriptionWe are living in the Age of Interruption; modern techlogy is changing our forms of attention, everyday life is subject to more disruption than ever before. As the pattern of our lives changes so dramatically so too does our sense of continuity and tradition. In a series of essays by distinguished writers from diverse fields this book explores how the idea of Interruption constitutes our sense of ourselves, often without our ticing. Interruption has become part of the new order of our lives, both a threat and a promise. These eloquent and searching accounts give interruption its place as a powerful figure and force.
