Turkle, S. (2009) Simulation and Its Discontents Cambridge: MIT Press (launch: May 2009)

From the publisher’s blurb:

Sherry Turkle examines the now dominant medium of our working lives and finds that simulation has become its own sensibility…From both sides of a generational divide, there is anxiety that in simulation, something important is slipping away…Turkle’s examination of simulation over the past twenty years is followed by four in-depth investigations of contemporary simulation culture: space exploration, oceanography, architecture, and biology.

I will possibly do a review of this book when I have read it.
