Product Description

Review

"Kittler's thesis is timely and intriguing. . . . To read this book is to take a wild ride through philosophy, music, the visual arts, popular culture, engineering, psychoanalysis, the history of science, literature, communication studies, film studies, and more. . . . This book belongs on any reading list in media studies, and should be essential for anyone interested in the intersections of comparative literature, literary theory, and media studies. Gramaphone, Film, and Typewriter is a stunning achievement. . . ."—The Comparalist


"Recommended for graduate collections in media studies, especially those including European scholarship."—Choice


"Friedrich Kittler proves a welcome exception to the standardized academic format of many of his German colleagues. . . . The excellent translation by Geoffrey-Winthrop Young and Michael Wutz is highly readable (no awkward Germanisms) and is preceded by a thorough and incisive introduction. . . . The present volume is Kittler's most accessible work so far, since it is written for expert and general reader alike."—Johns Hopkins University Press


"Kittler's broadband scholarly panoptics afford a sublime techno-discursive vista, and in particular a point of lucid observation on the ongoing relativization of literary production."—American Book Review

Fantastic Book - great ideas and fun to read! Jan. 15 2013
By rhizomeman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is one of my favorite books. Kittler proposes a radical critique of discourse from the 19th to the 20th centuries in relation to technology. Filled with great ideas and fun to read, I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in media studies or critical theory.
