Marshall McLuhan

Marshall McLuhan

One of the most prominent theorists of XX century. in the field of culture and communication
Like primitive, we now live in a global village of our own making, a simultaneous happening. It doesn't necessarily mean harmony and peace and quiet but it does mean huge involvement in everybody else's affairs.More Marshall McLuhan quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Professionalism merges the individual into patterns of total environment. Amateurism seeks the development of the total awareness of the individual and the critical awareness of the groundrules of society. The amateur can afford to lose. The professional tends to classify and specialise, to accept uncritically the groundrules of the environment. The groundrules provided by the mass response of his colleagues serve as a pervasive environment of which he is contentedly unaware. The 'expert' is the man who stays put.More Marshall McLuhan quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
