About this item

You are a four-dimensional human. A constellation of everyday digital phenomena is rewiring your inner life, increasingly coaxing you from your three-dimensional physical boundaries into a wonderful and eerie fourth dimension, in which there is no stable border between your digital experience and your 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.
