Blog Talk Radio: "The Technologizing of the Word: the Philosophy of Walter Ong, SJ." Interview with Thomas J. Farrell. September 10, 2009 at 7 pm.
In this show, we discuss the fascinating and profound ideas of Walter Ong, S.J. with Dr. Thomas J. Farrell, a renowned Ong scholar. Author of numerous articles on Ong as well as the critically acclaimed, Walter Ong’s Contributions to Cultural Studies: The Phenomenology of the Word and I-Thou Communication, Dr. Farrell will discuss Ong's philosophy about the relationship amongst the spoken word (primary orality), the written word (literacy) and technology (secondary orality). We will introduce the listener to some of the ideas of Ong, and will demonstrate their poignancy and relevancy as the internet evolves into Web 3.0 -- and arguably into a new (tertiary) form of orality and the spoken word.
