“Superb scholarship. The range and depth of the author’s comprehension is stunning. Professor Anton has made a groundbreaking contribution to the field.
Scholars, take note!”
–Lee Thayer, Distinguished Professor (ret.) and author of Explaining Things
“Anton’s thoughts on reading and education, especially poignant in this time of rapidly declining literacy, are nicely complemented by the suggestions and observations on ecology of media. His characteristic wit and wisdom enliven every essay herein.”
“Corey Anton brings a brilliantly original voice to the discipline of general semantics, the field of media ecology, and the theories associated with cybernetics and the systems view. Scholarly, passionate, and inspired, this collection of essays should be required reading for anyone interested in human communication, signification, symbolization, and mediation.”
–Lance Strate, Professor of Communication and Media Studies, Fordham University; author of On the Binding Biases of Time and Other Essays on General Semantics and Media Ecology; past president of the Media Ecology Association and former Executive Director of the Institute of General Semantics
