Inhaltsangabe: Herve Fischer believes that the digital revolution is a definitive moment in human history, as important as the discovery of fire. Deceptively quiet, it is invasive, radical and affects all aspects of human activity. Fischer cautions that we need to develop a cyber-philosophy to confront this new reality. In Digital Shock, the first English translation of his critically acclaimed Le Choc du numerique: A l'aube d'une nouvelle civilization, le triomphe des cyberprimitifs, Fischer warns that we must take a critical approach to these immensely beneficial, yet potentially devastating, technologies. The challenge, argues Fischer, is to avoid falling into cyber-primitivism - into allowing new technologies to enslave us by enshrining a symbolic, virtual cyber-world and powerful techno-scientific utopia. This could lead to another Middle Ages, destroying the modern idea of a political and social utopia. From cyberspace to artificial intelligence to genetic engineering, Digital Shock exposes the relationships between human beings and digital technology and examines our response to the myths and promises of the digital revolution.

Rezension: "It is a great pleasure to read Fischer's analysis, which is both critical and astonishing, in a book at the crossroads of sociology, philosophy, art, and new technologies." L'Omniscient "For this daring thinker, the digital revolution is the beginning of another Middle Age. Fischer, the father of multimedia in Quebec, plumbs the depths of cyber culture with a nuanced formulation of the paradoxical laws that govern this extravagant civilization founded on the infinite resources of an abstract universe." La Presse (Montreal) "Should we be cautious about digital technology and techno-science or optimistic about their extraordinary possibilities? Both, affirms Herve Fischer, who argues that they can direct us toward a new humanism." Multimedium
