about this item

A revelatory portrait of the human existence in the digital age.We are four-dimensional humans. A constellation of everyday digital phenomena is rewiring our inner lives, increasingly coaxing us from our three-dimensional physical boundaries into a wonderful and eerie fourth dimension, in which there is no stable border between our digital experience and our corporeal one. But what does it feel like to be four-dimensional? How do digital technologies influence the rhythms of our thoughts, the style and tilt of our consciousness?Laurence Scott—hailed as a new generation thinker by the BBC—shows how four-dimensional life is dramatically changing us by redefining our social lives and by extending the limits of our presence in the world. Blending tech philosophy and high-low erudition, Scott stands with a rising generation of social critics hoping to understand our new digital landscape. His virtuosic debut is a revelatory and original exploration of life in the digital age.
