From the latest ‘Adbusters’, describing work of Antonio Damasio at USC. This struck me because I read a piece yesterday suggesting that research was showing that traditional concepts of morality and empathy were less valued by teenagers today. Obviously this is a hugely simplified take and nothing conclusive, but I’ve long thought that we’re not going to understand the impact of the internet on our humanity until we simply have to live with the results, be they positive or otherwise.
