Herbert Marshall McLuhan fue un filósofo, erudito y profesor canadiense.

Profesor de literatura inglesa, crítica literaria y teoría de la comunicación, McLuhan es reconocido como uno de los fundadores de los estudios sobre los medios, y ha pasado a la posteridad como uno de los grandes visionarios de la presente y futura sociedad de la información. Hacia finales de la década de 1960 y principios de los 70, McLuhan acuñó el término aldea global para describir la interconexión humana a escala global generada por los medios electrónicos de comunicación.

„Media are means of extending and enlarging our organic sense lives into our environment“

„There is nothing willful or arbitrary about the Innis mode of expression.“

—  Marshall McLuhan
Context: There is nothing willful or arbitrary about the Innis mode of expression. Were it to be translated into perspective prose, it would not only require huge space, but the insight into the modes of interplay among forms of organisation would also be lost. Innis sacrificed point of view and prestige to his sense of the urgent need for insight. A point of view can be a dangerous luxury when substituted for insight and understanding. As Innis got more insight he abandoned any mere point of view in his presentation of knowledge. When he interrelates the development of the steam press with 'the consolidation of the vernaculars' and the rise of nationalism and revolution he is not reporting anybody's point of view, least of all his own. He is setting up a mosaic configuration or galaxy for insight … Innis makes no effort to "spell out" the interrelations between the components in his galaxy. He offers no consumer packages in his later work, but only do-it-yourself kits... p. 216; this paragraph was quoted as "context (0) - THE INNIS MODE" by John Brunner, the epigraph or first chapter in his novel Stand on Zanzibar (1968)
