The Medium Is the Maker

Browning, Freud, Derrida, and the New Telepathic Ecotechnologies

By J. Hillis Miller

This book provides a new understanding of the nexus between the literary world and contemporary communication (iPhone, et al.) in all its facets - not Marshall McLuhan's "The medium is the message," but a new formula: "The medium is the maker." In this exploration of the medium - traditional, modern, postmodern - Miller engages with Browning, Freud, and Derrida to provide a platform of personal discovery and literary enlightenment (at times solemn, ironic, comic, and occasionally devastating).
