The early twenty-first century has seen a revolution in the control of knowledge and information. Without pausing to consider the cost, we have allowed four titanic corporations to become the most powerful gatekeepers the world has ever known. We shop with Amazon; socialise on Facebook; turn to Apple for entertainment; and rely on Google for information. But what do these companies really want, and what will be the lasting effects of their monopolies for our culture? As Franklin Foer so convincingly argues in this brilliant polemic, they have produced an unstable and narrow culture of misinformation. They have set us on a path to a world without private contemplation, autonomous thought, or solitary introspection - a world without mind. At stake is nothing less than who we are, and what we will become. World Without Mind makes a passionate, deeply informed case for the need to reclaim our intellectual culture before it is too late. It's a message that could not be more timely.
