Marshall McLuhan and Norman Mailer: Artists, Patterns and Morality

Vodpod videos no longer available.

more about “ Norman Mailer and Marshall McLuhan D…“, posted with vodpod


A debate in 1968 that is still relevant today.

Probably the best thirty minutes you could spend this week is hearing these two giants exchange their thoughts.

I agree with McLuhan’s foresight regarding the ascent of the role of the artist to integrate new good patterns on behalf of the global village. I also agree with Mailer’s foresight regarding the ascent of the role of the artist to denigrate new bad patterns on behalf of the global village. This is the crux of their differences and amusingly, they argue past one another.
