"While a wealth of literature has been devoted to life with the Internet, the deep philosophical implications of this seismic shift have not been properly explored ... Demonstrating that knowledge based on reason plays an essential role in society and that there is much more to 'knowing' than just acquiring information, ... philosopher Michael Patrick Lynch [posits that] our digital way of life makes us overvalue some ways of processing information over others, and thus risks distorting what it means to be human"--Dust jacket flap.
