SUMMARY OF NEIL POSTMAN’S AMUSING OURSELVES TO DEATH
In Neil Postman’s book ‘Amusing Ourselves to Death’, there has been a comparative analysis of George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty Four and Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World. Author Postman has focused on proving that it is the Brave New World which surpasses Nineteen Eighty Four in terms of more realistic prediction of how human civilization shall end up being ruined by things as well as technologies we love. This short essay aims at summarizing the two chapters of this book, namely ‘The Medium is Metaphor’ and ‘Media as Epistemology’.
