Mental Penguins

The Neverending Education Crisis and the False Promise of the Information Аge

This fascinating book is a sobering look at the ongoing crisis in civic learning and the fatal attraction of information technology. Professor Ivelin Sardamov draws on key findings in neuroscience to explain the waning interest in and knowledge of complex social issues in the United States and around the world. Attributing this trend primarily to the effects of information overload, ubiquitous screens and constant access to the internet, Sardamov argues that chronic over-stimulation generated by the current sociotechnological environment fosters addictive tendencies in today’s young people.
