Inhaltsangabe:

Farther Shore, The: A Natural History of Perception, by Gifford, Don

From Library Journal:

Gifford, best known as editor of the excellent 1966 classic Literature of Architecture , is intriguing, refreshing, and thought-provoking here. By "perception," he means the effects of technology, urbanization, population growth, and social and cultural expansion on our perceptions--how planes, trains, and automobiles have changed our perception of time and distance; how electronic media have affected our perception of "news" and "celebrities"; and how "big numbers" have changed our perception of size and distance. His main points of reference are the journals and letters of the naturalist Gilbert White, but the book brims with examples from Thoreau, Wordsworth, and Joyce, among others, in clever counterpoint to present-day examples from Reagan to People magazine. This is a thinking person's alternative to the rash of futurist and pseudosociological tracts that infest the publishing world.
