From the Back Cover

The Art of the Motor includes analyses of such recent developments as nanotechnology and virtual reality. It conjures a world in which information is speed and duration is no more. Information as speed? This, Paul Virilio tells us, is the third dimension of matter-the speed of the transmission of information has collapsed the extension of the dimension of space and the duration of the dimension of time.

Top Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
Not only can you not judge this book by its title but, unfortunately, the subject "information technology" normally supplied on booklists or used for library cataloging also is misleading. There is nearly no applied technology here; certainly nothing about making motors work.
This work is a scholarly essay which would find its most appreciative audience in a multi-discipline college honors class. The book combines philosophy with history of social change, history of journalism and television, and the effects of speedier mass communication on everyone's worldview.
It is likely no reader will agree with all points of Virilio's premise, but he presents points of view worthy of contemplating.
A reader with broad interests in the humanities as well as sociology will enjoy this book. The enjoyment will be even higher if the reader is familiar with European as well as American social and government trends. And you need to be comfortable reading French idioms which, justifiably, have been left untranslated. Most scientists would find this book too philosophical to be of interest to them.
