Marshall McLuhan, somewhere, is getting quite a chuckle out of Douglas Coupland's biography of the prophet of the digital age, if only because Coupland's imaginative recounting has refashioned the typographical media of the book (a keystone subject of McLuhan's work) to reflect the impact of the digital media on its aging ancester/5.

"The medium is the message" is a phrase coined by the Canadian communication thinker Marshall McLuhan and introduced in his Understanding Media: The Extensions of Man, published in McLuhan proposes that a communication medium itself, not the messages it carries, should be the primary focus of study.

He has a number of eminent and vehement detractors, too. The critic Dwight Macdonald calls McLuhan's books "impure nonsense, nonsense adulterated by sense." Leslie Fiedler wrote in Partisan Review "Marshall McLuhancontinually risks sounding like the body-fluids man in "Doctor Strangelove." Still the McLuhan movement rolls on.

But there are problems with these ideas, as we learnt from reading Sense and Nonsense of McLuhan, a book written in by the cultural critic Sidney Finkelstein. In The Gutenberg Galaxy McLuhan reformulates the Aristotelian-Thomist concept of the sensus communis in terms of a 'sense-ratio', a concept ostensibly adopted from William Blake.

Quoting from Blake's poem Jerusalem: The Emanation of the Giant Albion (written ), McLuhan asserts that Blake 'is concerned with the changing patterns of human perception'.

The depth of the book is conveyed in the title. According to McLuhan's official website (maintained by his family), "The Medium is the Massage" was originally supposed to be "The Medium is the Message".

When McLuhan saw the error, he told the printer to, "leave it alone. It's great and right on target!"/5(). McLuhan's work is viewed as one of the cornerstones of the study of media theory. McLuhan is known for coining the expressions "the medium is the message" and the "global village".

Herbert Marshall McLuhan, CC, was a Canadian educator, philosopher, and scholar — a professor of English literature, a literary critic, and a communications theorist/5.

***The following is the final term paper I wrote and submitted last week (May 3, ) for an undergraduate communications course titled "The Cultural Impact of Media Technology" in which the theories presented in scholar Marshall McLuhan's Understanding Media (including some of their applications to modern-day forms of media) are discussed.***.

No-one, that is, except for a handful of science fiction writers and Marshall McLuhan. Understanding Media was written twenty years before the PC revolution and thirty years before the rise of the Internet/5(6).The nonsense of this is not apparent to McLuhan, who really believes that verbalizers like himself are social engineers.
