PROBE: Dialectical Reef




" The fallacy in the Deutsch-Wiener approach is its failure to understand the techniques and functions of the traditional arts as the essential type of all human communication. It is instead a dialectical approach born of technology and quite unable of itself to see beyond or around technology. The Medieval schoolmen ultimately ended up on the same dialectical reef. "

- McLuhan Letter to Harold Innis, Toronto, 14th March 1951
