Philosophy Wire: eBooks, knowledge, objects.


Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2014-02-13]: eBooks as a product are going through a crisis, with sales decreasing. [1] Technology takes away that personal touch we want to have with others and with the things we love. That is why the Internet will never replace personal meetings (there was a lot of speculation that this will happen, for those who remember the early days of the Internet) and the ebook will never replave the holding, turning pages and making hand notes on a book... That is why it is essential to close Harmonia Philosophica now! And go buy the book! :) We must feel knowledge like it is ours. Not like an object (Greek: αντι-κείμενο > that which is opposite to me).
