Abstract:

"Sherry Turkle investigates a troubling consequence: at work, at home, in politics, and in love, we have sacrificed conversation for mere connection. At the dinner table, children compete with smartphones for their parents' attention. At work, we retreat to our screens, forgoing the water-cooler conversation that once made us productive and engaged. Online, we share options that our friends will agree with, avoiding the real conflicts and solutions of the public square. When we turn to our devices instead of to one another, the cost is high: a loss of empathy. But there is good news: conversation cures. Face-to-face dialogue builds empahty, friendship, and creativity; it's the cornerstone of democracy and good for the bottom line. Based on five years of research and interviews in homes, schools, and the workplace, Turkle argues that the time is right to reclaim conversation."--Source inconnue.
