1.0 out of 5 stars Dreadful book, 31 Dec 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Heidegger, Habermas and the Mobile Phone (Postmodern Encounters) (Paperback)
I believe this book represents the most crass interpretation of Heidegger's thinking that I have seen (and I have seen a few). It abstracts one or two quotes from Heidegger to support an utterly un-Heideggerian point of view and never attempts anything like serious engagement. It says nothing about Heidegger's question concerning technology and tries to suggest that the mobile phone facilitates communication and thus represents a new revelation of language - this is not what Heidegger means by language. Dont waste your money - get the real thing instead.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a must, 29 Oct 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Heidegger, Habermas and the Mobile Phone (Postmodern Encounters) (Paperback)
I was clearly disappionted after reading this small book. I have no complaints about the authors knowledge of Heidegger and Habermas. But it seems like he has read the press releases from Nokia and Orange (both are important sources in this book) as the devil reads the bible. The future clearly are not as bad as Myerson seems to think and we for sure are not going to stop making sense of communication.
