Synopsis

To what extent is our time characterised by the 'digital'? Does it announce a bright new age of technological progress, or is it not much more than a marketing tag for manufacturers? What is clear is that much of the cultural theory we have so far accumulated is showing signs of strain as it struggles to cope with the rapid global dynamics of the 'wired world'. This book offers a timely intellectual strategy that may help us comprehend the contradictions and apparent paradoxes of our immediate cultural climate. Using the metaphor of an organic membrane to show how things can be both separate and connected The Postdigital Membrane explores the triad of imagination, technology and desire as they play upon each other, and us. In doing so it tries to offer fresh insights into the deeper problems of consciousness, reality and human being, in particular the emerging consciousness of the postdigital age.
