Offering a history of this "electric trinity" and theoretical analysis of the responses to the ensuing media revolution, the author draws on the works of such as Heidegger, Foucault, McLuhan, and technological innovators like Edison. The translators' introduction places the discourse in the context of renewed interest in oral communication; Kittler's (Stanford, 1990); "Lacancan and Derridada" influences; and computer technology. Originally published in German as (Brinkmann & Bose, 1986). Lacks an index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
