About this Unit
This is a transdiciplinary unit which uses powerful new concepts from science dealing with chaos and complexity to explore major issues in communications today, especially hingeing around the so-called 'information revolution' and its impacts on and linkages with the postmodern world. It asks such questions as: What is a media revolution? How does it connect with profound changes in culture, society and thought? What can we learn about the current revolution from a long history of media, culture and society? How can terms and modes of thought from science help us to have a more creative response to the new phenomena of cyberculture, and a deeper understanding of the nature and possibilities of communication in all modes, at all stages of history?
