Barbrook, Richard:

Imaginary Futures: From Thinking Machines to the Global Village - Paperback

ISBN: 9780745326603

[ED: Softcover], [PU: PLUTO PR], Richard Barbrook examines the politics of our imagined futures. Countless books, films and TV shows have envisioned the future as a place where technology and artificial intelligence hold the key to human society. Tracing these visions back to the 1950s and 1960s, he shows how deeply they draw on the propaganda ideologies of the Cold War. As technology advanced it was quickly co-opted for military purposes. Barbrook explores how the potentially subversive theory of cybernetics was transformed into the military-friendly project of 'artificial intelligence'. Capitalist growth became the root of the 'information society'. Barbrook places today's excitement about the web and other technological advances in a critical light. He shows how today's vision of the future is not new, and how it serves a specific political purpose - the advancement of US interests. By analysing the history of our imaginary futures, Barbrook also shows that we can invent our own improved visions of the future. 272 pages - 215 x 135mm Versandfertig in über 4 Wochen, [SC: 0.00], Neuware, gewerbliches Angebot
