Alone Together : Why We Expect More from Technology and Less from Each Other by Sherry Turkle( Book )

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 )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 1,333 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"--Publisher's description

Seuls ensemble : de plus en plus de technologies, de moins en moins de relations humaines by Sherry Turkle( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in French and held by 65 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."
