Digital technology is a 'natural technology'-a technology so intuitive as to conceal how and how far it transforms the world.

About the Author

Anton Barba-Kay received a Ph.D. from the University of Chicago's Committee on Social Thought in 2013. He was Professor of Philosophy at Catholic University from 2013-22. He is now Robert B. Aird Chair of Humanities at Deep Springs College-a liberal arts college on a cattle ranch in the Eastern Sierra.


'There have been plenty of books written about the digital age, but Anton Barba-Kay gives us something genuinely new. With a clinical yet passionate intelligence, he explains how the fusion of technology and being has forever changed who we are and how we live. A Web of Our Own Making is fierce, uncompromising, and essential.' Nicholas Carr, author of The Shallows and The Glass Cage
'In compelling, elegant prose, Anton Barba-Kay lucidly diagnoses the full extent of our current technocultural crisis. His analysis is unflinching, and does not settle for any facile reassurances. But do not call his approach nostalgic, or, even worse, 'Luddit'. For Barba-Kay is not seeking to go back to anything, but rather is helping to advance the very urgent project of finding a way forward that preserves the irreducibly human within a complex and unprecedented technological landscape. This book is timely and necessary indeed.' Justin E. H. Smith, professor of history and philosophy of science at the University of Paris, author of The Internet Is Not What You Think It Is
