about this item

In this book, author Vincent Miller presents readers with an examination of the concept of presence and how the challenges of our changing presence in the world, mitigated primarily by our activity on the Internet, are challenging our notions of public discourse, ethics, and privacy. He has organized the main body of his text into four chapters focused on the problem of speech in a world where people write instead of talking; the concept of distributed selves, abstractions of presence, and their impact on privacy and autonomy; presence, proximity, and ethical online behavior, and the concept of a metaphysical and technological dual presence. Miller is a faculty member of the University of Kent in the UK. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (
