Philosophy Wire: SMS texting overtakes talking – Civilization at an end?

Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2012-07-23]: Research in UK shows that SMS texting overtook talking for the first time [source: BBC News]. For thousands of years, most people thought writing was the “higher” form of communication. But Socrates, Jesus and Buddha knew better. Talking is more immediate and surely our modern civilization cannot stand that. So go on! Text all you want! Who cares what you say anyway?!?

PS. Wait! Does that apply to Harmonia Philosophica written articles as well? You’d better find me and have a little live conversation about that… Γελαστούλης
