We never talk anymore!

Nov 8, 2016

Sherry Turkle writes “face to face conversation is the most human – and humanizing – thing we do.” Yet, Turkle says in contemporary society we’re seeing a flight from conversation to our phones where we get a constant feed of connection, information and entertainment. 

Turkle is a professor at MIT who focuses on our relationship to technology.  Her most recent book is “Reclaiming Conversation: the Power of Talk in the Digital Age.” Turkle says the decline of face to face conversation has led to an assault on empathy.
