Language. The medium is the message. Publications The phrase was introduced in his most widely known book, Understanding Media: The Extensions of Man, published in 1964. McLuhan proposes that a medium itself, not the content it carries, should be the focus of study.
He said that a medium affects the society in which it plays a role not only by the content delivered over the medium, but also by the characteristics of the medium itself. McLuhan frequently punned on the word "message", changing it to "mass age", "mess age", and "massage"; a later book, The Medium Is the Massage was originally to be titled The Medium is the Message, but McLuhan preferred the new title, which is said to have been a printing error. Key Concepts Extending the argument for understanding the medium as the message itself, he proposed that the “content of any medium is always another medium” – thus, the content of writing is speech, print is that of writing and print itself is the content of the telegraph.

Il faut comprendre que nous sommes (pour la plupart) des volontaires. 2. 3. Discussions styles analisys. The Rise of the Conversation Society: information, Social Movements Cannot Prevail Through Secrecy. Excerpted from Dmytri Kleiner: “Social struggles are not won by clandestinity and intrigue, but by mass struggle.
The major social victories of history, the civil rights movement, the labour movement, the feminist movement, and many others, had the effect they had because of mass support and the mass mobilization of supporters, not because of heroic secret missions conducted by clandestine revolutionaries. This myth of the adventurist, intriguing, even ruthless revolutionary is very powerful, Chernyshevsky, Nechayev, Bakunin, Edlridge Cleaver, Lenin and many other seminal revolutionaries believed strongly in this view, yet despite the inspirational role these people played, the degree to which they accomplished what they set out to is quite limited.
