The Brain - anything new comments?
Find someone you haven’t worked with in class before and compare your ideas from the readings. You can use the following if you need to.
- Is Mander right about a ‘global conspiracy’ by corporations to run the earth? Does he over-glamourize indigenous cultures or are we not paying enough attention to them?
- Do you speak another language? Are there ideas or expressions that do not translate well? Does language limit how we think?
- Is Postman right that tech advantages are never distributed equally?
