Imaginary Futures: From Thinking Machines to the Global Village - livre d'occasion

2008, ISBN: 9780745326610

ID: 2772028

Winner of the MEA's 2008 Marshall McLuhan Award for Outstanding Book in the Field of Media Ecology. 'A compelling, authoritative, and painstakingly documented narrative, Imaginary Futures traces the emergence of the computer era in the context of desperately competing ideologies, economics, and empires. This is a work of passionate and persuasive scholarship by a contemporary social theorist at the top of his game.' Douglas Rushkoff, author, Coercion, Media Virus, Get Back in the Box. 'Imaginary Futures gives insight into how the dominant utopias of today were shaped in the time of the Cold War and served the ideological needs of the elites. While the Cold War West had a much better present, it was the Soviet East which had a vision of the future. The invention of a Western utopia became an important factor in the struggle for global power.' Boris Kagarlitsky, Senior Research Fellow, Institute for Comparative Political Studies, Russian Academy of Sciences -- The future is now-- Richard Barbrook argues that, at the height of the Cold War, the Americans invented a truly revolutionary tool: the Internet. Yet, for all of its libertarian potential, hi-tech science soon became a tool of geopolitical dominance. The rest of the world was expected to follow America's path into the networked future. Today, we're still told that the Net is creating the information society. Barbrook shows how we can reclaim its revolutionary purpose: how the DIY ethic of the internet can help people shape information technologies in their own interest and reinvent their own, improved visions of the future.

ID: 099275d289b6e430d65822c5b897de90

From Thinking Machines to the Global Village Richard Barbrook examines the politics of our imagined futures. Countless books, films and TV shows have envisioned the future as a place where technology and artificial intelligence hold the key to human society. Tracing these visions back to the 1950s and 1960s, he shows how deeply they draw on the propaganda ideologies of the Cold War. As technology advanced, it was quickly co-opted for military purposes. Barbrook explores how the potentially subversive theory of cybernetics was transformed into the military-friendly project of 'artificial intelligence'. Capitalist growth became the root of the 'information society'. Barbrook places today's excitement about the web and other technological advances in a critical light. He shows how today's vision of the future is not new, and how it serves a specific political purpose - the advancement of US interests. By analysing the history of our imaginary futures, Barbrook also shows that we can invent our own improved visions of the future.
