For more than two decades in such landmark studies as i The Second Self i and i Life on the Screen i Sherry Turkle has challenged our collective imagination with her insights about how technology enters our private worlds In i The Inner History of Devices i she describes her process an approach that reveals how what we make is woven into our ways of seeing ourselves She brings together three traditions of listening that of the memoirist the clinician and the ethnographer Each informs the others to compose an inner history of devices br br We read about objects ranging from cell phones and video poker to prosthetic eyes from Web sites and television to dialysis machines In an introductory essay Turkle makes the case for an intimate ethnography that challenges conventional wisdom One personal computer owner tells Turkle This computer means everything to me It s where I put my hope Turkle explains that she began that conversation thinking she would learn how people put computers to work By its end her question has changed What was there about personal computers that offered such deep connection What did a computer have that offered hope br br i The Inner History of Devices i teaches us to listen for the answer In the memoirs ethnographies and clinical cases collected in this volume we read about an American student who comes to terms with her conflicting identities as she contemplates a cell phone she used in Japan Tokyo sat trapped inside it a troubled patient who uses email both to criticize her therapist and to be reassured by her a compulsive gambler who does not want to win steadily at video poker because a pattern of losing and winning keeps her more connected to the body of the machine In these writings we hear untold stories We learn that received wisdom never goes far enough, Consider Facebook it s human contact only easier to engage with and easier to avoid Developing technology promises closeness Sometimes it delivers but much of our modern life leaves us less connected with people and more connected to simulations of them br br In i Alone Together i MIT technology and society professor Sherry Turkle explores the power of our new tools and toys to dramatically alter our social lives It s a nuanced exploration of what we are looking for and sacrificing in a world of electronic companions and social networking tools and an argument that despite the hand waving of today s self described prophets of the future it will be the next generation who will chart the path between isolation and connectivity, In i The Second Self i Sherry Turkle looks at the computer not as a tool but as part of our social and psychological lives she looks beyond how we use computer games and spreadsheets to explore how the computer affects our awareness of ourselves of one another and of our relationship with the world Technology she writes catalyzes changes not only in what we do but in how we think First published in i The Second Self i is still essential reading as a primer in the psychology of computation This twentieth anniversary edition allows us to reconsider two decades of computer culture to re experience what was and is most novel in our new media culture and to view our own contemporary relationship with technology with fresh eyes Turkle frames this classic work with a new introduction a new epilogue and extensive notes added to the original text br br Turkle talks to children college students engineers AI scientists hackers and personal computer owners people confronting machines that seem to think and at the same time suggest a new way for us to think about human thought emotion memory and understanding Her interviews reveal that we experience computers as being on the border between inanimate and animate as both an extension of the self and part of the external world Their special place betwixt and between traditional categories is part of what makes them compelling and evocative In the introduction to this edition Turkle quotes a PDA user as saying When my Palm crashed it was like a death I thought I had lost my mind Why we think of the workings of a machine in psychological terms how this happens and what it means for all of us is the ever more timely subject of i The Second Self i, Dynasty provides a portrayal of the last years of Lacan s life and the events that unfolded in the years following his death in
