Marshall McLuhan and Quentin Fiore on (New) Media




"All media work us over completely. They are so pervasive in their personal, political, economic, aesthetic, psychological, moral, ethical, and social consequences that they leave no part of us untouched, unaffected, unaltered. The medium is the message. Any understanding of social and cultural change is impossible without a knowledge of the way media work as environments.

All
media
are
extensions
of
some
human
faculty  —
psychic
or
physical."

Marshall McLuhan and Quentin Fiore, from "The Medium is the Message," 1967
