Rob Shields - The Virtual (Key Ideas)
Routledge | ISBN: 0415281814 | 23/12/2002 | English | 192 pages | PDF | 1 MB

Rob Shields unravels the origins and the many contemporary meanings of the virtual as a concept. Shields dissects the history of the virtual world and takes his analysis beyond the technologies themselves to show how the virtual has infiltrated our daily lives at every level. From the moral panics over paedophile stalkers on the net to the automated telemarketing that interrupts our dinners and clogs our answer phones to the laptops which keep us connected to the office twenty four hours a day, technology has become an integral part of modern living. With insight and clarity, The Virtual reveals how technology has become virtually entwined in contemporary society.

Rob Shields has written an encyclopedia of the virtual that will prove to be as indispensable to the layman as to the researcher.
–Pierre Levy, Canada Research Chair on Collective Intelligence, University of Ottawa

Shields succeeds in removing the mask of The Virtual, revealing its productivity, ubiquity, and logic. The resulting text offers a compelling social critique of abstraction-on our screens, in the workplace, and within the very forces of globalization.
–Greg Elmer, Boston College

The content of The Virtual is quite interesting, Shields does a nice job historicizing the terms and contributing to the debates on the implications of a shifting relationship between the virtually real and the material.
