Herbert Marshall McLuhan

Fecha de nacimiento: 21. Julio 1911
Fecha de muerte: 31. Diciembre 1980

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 años 1970, McLuhan acuñó el término «aldea global» para describir la interconexión humana a escala global generada por los medios electrónicos de comunicación.[1]​Es famosa su frase «el medio es el mensaje».[2]​ Wikipedia

„I am not a "culture critic" because I am not in any way interested in classifying cultural forms. I am a metaphysician, interested in the life of the forms and their surprising modalities.“

—  Marshall McLuhan

Letters of Marshall McLuhan (1987), p. 413
1980s and later
Contexto: I am not a "culture critic" because I am not in any way interested in classifying cultural forms. I am a metaphysician, interested in the life of the forms and their surprising modalities. That is why I have no interest in the academic world.

„There are no passengers on Spaceship Earth. We are all crew.“

—  Marshall McLuhan

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

—  Marshall McLuhan, libro The Gutenberg Galaxy

Fuente: The Gutenberg Galaxy (1962), 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)
Contexto: 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...

„The subliminal depths of radio are charged with the resonating echoes of tribal horns and antique drums. This is inherent in the very nature of this medium, with its power to turn the psyche and society into a single echo chamber.“

—  Marshall McLuhan, libro Comprender los medios de comunicación: Las extensiones del ser humano

Understanding Media (1964)
Contexto: Radio affects most intimately, person-to-person, offering a world of unspoken communication between writer-speaker and the listener. That is the immediate aspect of radio. A private experience. The subliminal depths of radio are charged with the resonating echoes of tribal horns and antique drums. This is inherent in the very nature of this medium, with its power to turn the psyche and society into a single echo chamber. (p. 261)
