About this product
- DescriptionThe digital revolution is changing the world in ecologically unsustainable ways: (1) it increases the ecomic and political power of the elites controlling and interpreting the data; (2) it is based on the deep assumptions of market liberalism that do t recognize environmental limits; (3) it undermines face-to-face and context-specific forms of kwledge; (4) it undermines awareness of the metaphorical nature of language; (5) its promoters are driven by the myth of progress and thus igre important cultural traditions of the cultural commons that are being lost; and (6) it both by-passes the democratic process and colonizes other cultures. This book provides an in-depth examination of these phemena and connects them to questions of educational reform in the US and beyond.
- Author BiographyChet Bowers is a semi-retired university professor who has written 23 books that examine the linguistic/cultural roots of the ecological crisis--and their implications for reforming universities and public schools. He has been an invited speaker at 40 foreign and 42 American universities.
