Philosopher Michael Patrick Lynch approaches the Internet age with a question framed in the traditions of epistemology: how does reliance on the information made available by the Internet alter our ability to understand or have knowledge of a subject? How is fingertip-accessible information, or Google-knowing, affecting our ability to reason? As he considers how the Internet has altered our relationship to knowledge, he raises concerns about the future of thought that are particularly pressing in an age where networks, smart objects, wearable tech, and the advent of neuromedia increase the presence of the Internet in daily life in irreversible ways.
