Z by birthday from the calendar Credits and feedback (Herbert) Marshall McLuhan (1911-1980) Canadian academic and commentator on communications technology, who developed theories about the role of the electronic media in mass popular culture. He is best-known for the studies institutionalized as the University of Toronto's Center for Culture and Technology, where he was director from 1963. McLuhan's works include UNDERSTANDING MEDIA (1964) and MEDIUM IS THE MESSAGE (1967), in which he argued that the form of media has more significant effect on society and knowledge than the contents carried. McLuhan prophesied that printed books would become obsolete, killed off by television and other electronic information technology. "The new electronic interdependence recreates the world in the image of a global village." (from The Medium is the Message Marshall McLuhan was born in Edmonton, Alta. His father, Herbert Marshall McLuhan, was a real-estate and insurance salesman. Elsie Hall, McLuhan's mother, was an actress, who performed in church halls. Independent, stubborn, with a strong tendency to bully, McLuhan was not a good student at school. He was admitted to grade seven only after the efforts of his mother. McLuhan entered in 1928 the University of Manitoba, where he studied English, geology, history, Latin, astronomy, economics, and psychology. In 1933 he obtained his bachelor's degree and won a University Gold Medal in Arts and Science. In 1934 he went to England, where he spent to years at Trinity Hall at Cambridge University. Later he said that Cambridge was at that time full of homosexuals, but he also spoke of these years as the great years of his life.

McLuhan makes a profound distinction between percept and concept
Percept is mercurial, instantaneous, boundless, and involving. Concept is static, repetitive, detached, and enveloping. Percept advances and recedes like a gestalt, with a foreground and a background, attuned to depth. Concept traps meaning by concentrating only on the foreground, substituting itself as an artificial background. When we perceive something it is not ready-made. We grope for words. The 'play' in figure and ground is McLuhan's tactic for reversing the order of premise to conclusion, cause to effect, and content to medium. We go from effect to cause, and not the other way around, by proceeding from a preconceived notion (conclusion), to get to a premise in the first place, putting the cart before the horse as it were. We've concocted a bogus premise from preconceptions. Likewise effects often precede causes because they have created the conditions for a new situation well in advance of the presumed causes, that are in fact the result of a long but undetected process, not the point of departure at all. By inserting subtlety to assumptions, by uttering something unusual yet plainly observable, words advance accurate perceptions. '' The medium is the message '' is more than an observation. It's a slogan for perception. McLuhanism is a primarily a linguistic tool for the benefit of perception, a genre closely associated with

Marshall McLuhan Today, after more than a century of electric technology, we have extended our central nervous system itself in a global embrace, abolishing both space and time as far as our planet is concerned. - Marshall McLuhan, Understanding Media Summary : McLuhan made the concept of a global village, interconnected by an electronic nervous system, part of our popular culture well before it actually happened. Marshall McLuhan was the first person to popularize the concept of a global village, and to predict its social effects. His insights fundamentally changed how everyone has thought about media, technology, and communications ever since. He chose the phrase "global village" to highlight his insight that an electronic nervous system was rapidly integrating the planet, so that events in one part of the world could be experienced in real-time from other parts, which is what human experience was like when we lived in small villages. McLuhan's second best known insight is summarized in the expression "the medium is the message", which means that the qualities of a medium have as much effect as the information. For example, reading a description of a scene has a very different effect on someone than hearing about it, or seeing a picture of it, or watching a black and white video, or watching a colour video. McLuhan was particularly fascinated by the medium of television, calling it a "cool" medium, noting its soporific effect on viewers. He took great satisfaction years later when medical studies showed that TV does in fact cause people to settle into passive brain wave patterns. One wonders what he would make of the Internet?

Marshall McLuhan was born in Edmonton, Alberta (Canada), and studied at the Manitoba and Cambridge universities, obtaining at the latter a Ph.D. in English literature. McLuhan taught at the universities of Wisconsin and Saint Louis, at Assumption University and at Saint Michael's College of Toronto University, where he directed the Centre for Culture and Technology. This Centre does research on the psychic and social consequences of the technological media. Its current director is Derrick DeKerckhove. To honor McLuhan, the centre is currently called The McLuhan Programme in Culture and Technology. Some of McLuhan's best-known
concepts and aphorisms:
The medium is the message. The content of any medium
is always another medium. The world is
a global village. We look at the present through
a rearview mirror. And we go towards
the future

Marshall McLuhan
Marshall McLuhan, late of Edmonton, Canada, is undoubtedly an important thinker to reflect upon as we embark upon the new millennium. His major tome, Understanding Media , is rife with insight. Operating from his basic premise that "the medium is the message," McLuhan doesn't flinch from making amazingly broad and often quite astounding observations. Although once admired for his prose but clowned for his ideas, McLuhan seems increasingly pertinent in our souped-up image-devouring cyberculture (He spoke of the "global village" before the Internet was a gleam in the Pentagon's eye.) As the world moves at the speed of CNN and technology more and more often dictates culture, Mr. McLuhan seems ever more a sage ahead of his time. Besides, how can you not like any thinker who shows up in Annie Hall The message is the McLuhan Back to the Library

marshal About Marshall McLuhan Marshall McLuhan Signs abound indicating that Marshall McLuhan lives now again, as the media and cultural transformations that he diagnosed continue to unfold. Wired magazine re-releases The Medium is the Massage. Lewis Lapham writes that McLuhan makes more sense now than ever in his introduction to the republished Understanding Media. TV and radio shows mention McLuhan. Plays are written, and performed in San Francisco and Ottawa. A CD-ROM appears, demonstrating how well McLuhan's ideas hold up in new media formats. Even the Economist routinely refers to the Canadian media guru in discussions of the meaning of new media. McLuhan as intellectual and pop icon has become a fixture of late 20th Century and 21st Century thought. A computer-savvy generation turns to McLuhan as they explore the new media ecology. Baby boomers watch in amazement as the revolutionary impacts of television collide with the effects of the networked medium. The Oxford English Dictionary lists 346 references to McLuhan. His phrases turn up in surprising places. Take for example the U.S. federal court decision to overturn the Communications Decency Act: "Any content-based regulation of the Internet, no matter how benign the purpose, could burn the global village to roast the pig." Time Magazine (June 24, 1996). Everywhere his metaphors have new currency, his cliches have become archetypes.

Marshall McLuhan
Marshall McLuhan, once referred to as the "Oracle of the Electronic Age", is perhaps best know for his phrase turned into book title, The Medium is the Massage . As director of the Center for Culture and Technology at the University of Toronto, McLuhan rose to fame as a "guru" of media culture. According to Rogers (1994) although McLuhan served on the faculty at Toronto with Harold Innis , and acknowledged Innis's contribution to his theory, the two had little direct contact (p. 488). According to Christians (1989), McLuhan replaced "Innis' more somber historical and sociological themes" with a psychological and doxological approach (p. 238). McLuhan's contribution to the field of communication study was widely acclaimed by popular standards while simultaneously being dismissed by those in academic circles. According to Rogers, "During his lifetime McLuhan did more than any other individual to interest the general public in communication study" (p. 489). Gary Wolf, writing in

Marshall McLuhan Meets William Gibson in "Cyberspace"
by Michael E. Doherty, Jr. The other day, I was skimming several hundred e-mail messages that accumulated while I was offline in August and found myself fascinated by a conversation taking place on chortt-L (Computers in Humanities: Overcoming Resistance to Teaching with Technology), in which colleagues were discussing the particulars of titling a book chapter involving teaching in computer-mediated environments. One participant wrote, insistently, that the phrase "CMC" would be better replaced with "Cyberspace," as abbreviations are sometimes linguistic barriers. She contended, "with cyberspace in the title, at least our audience will know what we're talking about." It is her latter claim that is most intriguing to CMC professionals. When we say "cyberspace," do we in fact "know what we're talking about"? Michael Benedikt, author of Cyberspace: First Steps , takes a crack at an over-arching definition in his 1994 book: "Cyberspace: A word from the pen of William Gibson , science fiction writer, circa 1984 . . . A new universe, a parallel universe created and sustained by the world's computers and communication lines . . . The tablet become a page become a screen become a world, a virtual world . . . A common mental geography, built, in turn, by consensus and revolution, canon and experiment . . . Its corridors form wherever electricity runs with intelligence . . . The realm of pure information . . . "

Books include The Mechanical Bride The Gutenberg Galaxy Understanding Media (1964), and The Medium Is the Massage (with Quentin Fiore, 1967). from Webster's New Biographical Dictionary Computers are media in the McLuhanesque sense, even when they are not connected to the telephone network or to other computers (Kay, 1984; Steinfield et al., 1989). After interviewing hundreds of computer users, from novices to experienced hackers, Sherry Turkle (1984) called the computer "an expressive medium" (p. 15); she described one woman who "brought [a computer] into her life to write a book, but it brought her into a culture " (p. 191) a post-print culture that McLuhan saw developing thirty years ago, a culture that began to impinge on the centuries-old print society at the moment the first electric signal was sent through a wire. McLuhan,who did not live to see the proliferation of personal computers, set television on a pedestal as the "coolest" of the electric technologies, one he referred to as "the mosaic mesh" (1964). He credited TV with
