Quote of the Day: Lewis Mumford

Recommended Posts



Lewis Mumford's book on the history of technology ought to be required reading in high school.  That he published  it in 1934 only makes it the more remarkable.

 

“Moment to moment, it turns out, is not God’s conception, or nature’s. It is man conversing with himself about and through a piece of machinery he created."

We effectively became “time-keepers, and then time-savers, and now time-servers” with the invention of the clock.” 
 Lewis Mumford, Technics and Civilization
