What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“This book is as stimulating as 24 espressos!”

Matthieu Dugal , Radio Host, Animateur, CBC/Radio-Canada, Montreal

“Unprecedented philosophical thinking about the web. ”

Peppe Cavallari , Sens Public

"In the end Being and the Screen shows great analytical finesse. It invites us to overcome the antagonism between a love and a fear of technology, to address head-on what is revolutionary about the digital as regards perception and design. This book may well lay the foundations of a phenomenology of use. "

Michael Perret , Professor in Communication and Social Media at Haute École Arc, University of Applied Sciences and Arts Western Switzerland

" Being and the Screen is a much-needed, profound, and provocative analysis of the digital revolution. Staying away from gloomy techno-pessimism, Vial critically investigates the 'poetry of technology': the radically new ways in which digital technologies make the world appear to us. Its unique connection between philosophy and design makes this work a must-read, not only for designers and philosophers of technology, but for anyone engaged with the cultural implications of new technologies. "

Peter-Paul Verbeek , Distinguished Professor of Philosophy of Technology at the University of Twente, The Netherlands; author of Moralizing Technology: Understanding and Designing the Morality of Things
