THURSDAY, November 16TH

  • Read: Postman, Amusing Ourselves to Death
  • Keywords: Epistemology, “television as a medium,” “Now This” “being informed”
  • Question: Postman seems to not be a very big fan of TV here. In two paragraphs summarize his argument. Do this in a way if Postman were here to read it he would agree with you. That is your goal is to capture the argument not agree or disagree, just present and distill its essential points. Then in a third paragraph tell me if you agree or disagree with Postman’s analysis, why? why not?
