Jonathan Franzen Hits the Mark with Review of Sherry Turkle’s Book

Author Jonathan Franzen wrote a “spot-on” review of Sherry Turkle’s Reclaiming Conversation for the NY Times Magazine Section.

Turkle’s new book, Reclaiming Conversation, is straightforwardly a call to arms. In it, she claims that our “rapturous submission to digital technology has led to an atrophying of human capacities like empathy and self-¬≠reflection, and the time has come to reassert ourselves, behave like adults and put technology in its place.”

This reflection is a mirror image of Waldorf education. One of the primary tenets is connecting with each other, and Turkle argues that these values are being lost in technology – connections are being lost daily.
