The World on Paper: The Conceptual and Cognitive Implications of Writing and Reading
David R. OlsonISBN: 0521575583;
What role has writing played in the development of our modern understanding of language, nature and ourselves? Drawing on recent advances in history, anthropology, linguistics and psychology, the author offers a bold new perspective on how writing and reaing have historically and developmentally altered our understanding of language, mind and nature. These understandings, Olson argues, are by-products of living in a "world on paper."
