Abstract:

"Phenomena related to the transition from a literacy-dominated civilization to one of various means of expression and communication are at the center of his book. The fall of totalitarian regimes, the current structural difficulties of the European Community, the burden of state bureaucracies, the world-wide effort of re-engineering, and the global economy are part of the bigger picture of a necessary development." "This is no longer a world of two cultures - science and humanities - that C.P. Snow discussed. It is a world of a dynamics never before experienced in history. In this world, many new literacies, subject to obsolescence as anything else is in our time, override the need and possibility of one encompassing literacy. They provide means for human interaction appropriate to achieving probably the most radical forms of individualism, as well as the most intriguing means of social interconditioning."--Jacket.
