Alone together : why we expect more from technology and less from each other by Sherry Turkle( Book )

31 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,962 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In "Alone Together," MIT technology and society professor Sherry Turkle explores the power of our new tools and toys to dramatically alter our social lives. It's a nuanced exploration of what we are looking for--and sacrificing--in a world of electronic companions and social networking tools, and an argument that, despite the hand-waving of today's self-described prophets of the future, it will be the next generation who will chart the path between isolation and connectivity

Reclaiming conversation : the power of talk in a digital age by Sherry Turkle( Book )

19 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 1,960 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Preeminent author and researcher Sherry Turkle has been studying digital culture for over thirty years. Long an enthusiast for its possibilities, here she investigates a troubling consequence: at work, at home, in politics, and in love, we find ways around conversation, tempted by the possibilities of a text or an email in which we don't have to look, listen, or reveal ourselves. We develop a taste for what mere connection offers. The dinner table falls silent as children compete with phones for their parents' attention. Friends learn strategies to keep conversations going when only a few people are looking up from their phones. At work, we retreat to our screens although it is conversation at the water cooler that increases not only productivity but commitment to work. Online, we only want to share opinions that our followers will agree with - a politics that shies away from the real conflicts and solutions of the public square. The case for conversation begins with the necessary conversations of solitude and self-reflection. They are endangered: these days, always connected, we see loneliness as a problem that technology should solve. Afraid of being alone, we rely on other people to give us a sense of ourselves, and our capacity for empathy and relationship suffers. We see the costs of the flight from conversation everywhere: conversation is the cornerstone for democracy and in business it is good for the bottom line. In the private sphere, it builds empathy, friendship, love, learning, and productivity. But there is good news: we are resilient. Conversation cures. Based on five years of research and interviews in homes, schools, and the workplace, Turkle argues that we have come to a better understanding of where our technology can and cannot take us and that the time is right to reclaim conversation. The most human--and humanizing--thing that we do. The virtues of person-to-person conversation are timeless, and our most basic technology, talk, responds to our modern challenges. We have everything we need to start, we have each other"--

Simulation and its discontents by Sherry Turkle( Book )

18 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Br><br>Simulation and Its Discontents <br> by Turkle, Sherry<br> <br><br><br>Terms of use<br>Over the past twenty years, the technologies of simulation and visualization have changed our ways of looking at the world. In Simulation and Its Discontents, Sherry Turkle examines the now dominant medium of our working lives and finds that simulation has become its own sensibility. We hear it in Turkle’s description of architecture students who no longer design with a pencil, of science and engineering students who admit that computer models seem more "real" than experiments in physical laboratories. Echoing architect Louis Kahn’s famous question, "What does a brick want?", Turkle asks, "What does simulation want?" Simulations want, even demand, immersion, and the benefits are clear. Architects create buildings unimaginable before virtual design; scientists determine the structure of molecules by manipulating them in virtual space; physicians practice anatomy on digitized humans. But immersed in simulation, we are vulnerable. There are losses as well as gains. Older scientists describe a younger generation as "drunk with code." Young scientists, engineers, and designers, full citizens of the virtual, scramble to capture their mentors’ tacit knowledge of buildings and bodies. From both sides of a generational divide, there is anxiety that in simulation, something important is slipping away. Turkle’s examination of simulation over the past twenty years is followed by four in-depth investigations of contemporary simulation culture: space exploration, oceanography, architecture, and biology.<br><br>Descriptive content provided by Syndetics™, a Bowker service.<br>

Verloren unter 100 Freunden : wie wir in der digitalen Welt seelisch verkümmern by Sherry Turkle( Book )

7 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Comment les nouvelles technologies ont-elles redessiné le paysage de nos vies affectives et de notre intimité? Telle est la question centrale de 'Seuls ensemble'. Pour y répondre, l'anthropologue Sherry Turkle a étudié pendant quinze ans nos relations avec les objets technologiques. Elle a observé chez les utilisateurs de robots de compagnie une tendance à les considérer comme vivants et à se laisser duper par leurs réactions préprogrammées. Un nouveau fantasme est ainsi en train d'émerger, où des substituts technologiques, sûrs et sans surprises, pourraient bientôt remplacer les relations interpersonnelles, éprouvantes et imparfaites. Elle a constaté qu'une dynamique similaire était à l'œuvre dans nos rapports aux nouvelles technologies en général. L'ultra-connectivité s'accompagne de comportements compulsifs qui mettent en péril les bienfaits d'une certaine solitude, nécessaire à la construction de soi. Ses enquêtes sur les adolescents révèlent leur dépendance accrue aux smartphones et leur tendance à préférer les interactions médiatisées à celles en tête à tête - considérées comme trop risquées et et trop exigeantes. Ce livre captivant a eu un grand retentissement aux États-Unis, car il montre, preuves à l'appui, comment nous nous coupons de ce qui est au fondement de toute relation humaine : l'altérité et sa part d'imprévisibilité, de risques et de plaisirs, à jamais inaccessibles à des systèmes informatiques."

La conversazione necessaria : la forza del dialogo nell'era digitale by Sherry Turkle( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in Italian and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Viviamo in un mondo che sempre piú sacrifica i piaceri e i benefici della conversazione sull'altare delle tecnologie digitali. Parliamo con un amico, ma nel frattempo diamo piú di un'occhiata allo smartphone, e spesso i nostri figli si lagnano se non hanno tra le mani un dispositivo elettronico. Viviamo costantemente in un altrove digitale. Ma per capire chi siamo, per comprendere appieno il mondo che ci circonda, per crescere, per amare ed essere amati, dobbiamo saper conversare. La perdita della capacità di parlare <<faccia a faccia>> con gli altri - con empatia, imparando nel contempo a sopportare solitudine e inquietudini - rischia di ridurre le nostre capacità di riflessione e concentrazione, portandoci, nei casi estremi, a stati di dissociazione psichica e cognitiva. In questo libro, frutto di anni di interviste e di indagini sul campo, Sherry Turkle, <<l'antropologa del cyber-spazio>>, sottolinea le insidie e gli effetti delle appendici tecnologiche che ci circondano nella società e nella nostra vita quotidiana, per far sí che ognuno ridiventi padrone di se stesso, senza farsene acriticamente dominare
