Author: Neil Postman

About Author:

  Neil Postman (1931 — 2003) was an American critic and educator. He wrote seventeen books. His most famous (and controversial) was Amusing Ourselves to Death, a screed against television and how it turns everything into banal entertainment — including education and news. Just imagine FOX News during an election cycle and you’ll get the idea.

His interests were all over the place. He wrote on the disappearance of childhood, reforming public education, postmodernism, semantics and linguistics, and technopolies. He also wrote essays and lectured about lots of other things that you can find here if you scroll down long enough.

He was a professor of media ecology at New York University and died in 2003.
