“Reclaiming Conversation” by Sherry Turkle – A book review — 4 Comments

  1. This is a thought provoking topic and an issue that has become a social cancer. Unfortunately, the pandemic encourages the isolation predicated by technology because we are even more socially distanced. I recommended your blog to several people and will reread it again myself.

    Thank you

    • Thank you for your comments, Sheila. I share your concern. The current violent political polarization, plus the pandemic, highlights Turkle’s research. Isn’t it ironic that just as some CEOs are promoting face to face interaction, we’re forced back into the digital world? Thanks for sharing the blog. I believe this a an important topic that is running under our conscious radar,

  2. Spot on, Sue! I’ve always had the secret fear with my grandkids that the art of conversation would be lost. Emily, 13, and McKenna, 11, and Avery all live in Clayton. When I come to visit, our ritual is to walk to the Lyric, a coffee house that sells (yum) hot chocolate and smoothies. No phones or IPads, we just chat about what they did the past week, what their friends are doing, etc. I wouldn’t trade these times for the world!
