娱乐至死 | Amusing Ourselves to Death by Neil Postman

《娱乐至死》初版于1985年,是尼尔•波兹曼的代表作之一。《娱乐至死》想告大家可能成为现实的,是赫胥黎的预言,不是奥威尔的预言;毁掉我们的,不是我们憎恨的东西,恰恰是我们热爱的东西!

电视时代蒸蒸日上,电视改变了公众话语的内容和意义,政治、宗教、教育、体育、商业和任何其他公共领域的内容,都日渐以娱乐的方式出现,并成为一种文化精神,而人类无声无息地成为娱乐的附庸,毫无怨言,甚至心甘情愿,其结果是我们成了一个娱乐至死的物种。

乔治•奥威尔曾在《一九八四》中预言人类将会遭受外来压迫,失去自由;赫胥黎则在《美丽新世界》中表达了另一种忧虑:人们会渐渐爱上工业技术带来的娱乐和文化,不再思考。

Television has conditioned us to tolerate visually entertaining material measured out in spoonfuls of time, to the detriment of rational public discourse and reasoned public affairs.

In this eloquent, persuasive book, Neil Postman alerts us to the real and present dangers of this state of affairs, and offers compelling suggestions as to how to withstand the media onslaught. Before we hand over politics, education, religion, and journalism to the show business demands of the television age, we must recognize the ways in which the media shape our lives and the ways we can, in turn, shape them to serve out highest goals.
