Howard Rheingold’s Public Sphere in Internet Age #ws10 historic view starting with Habermas

Howard Rheingold’s Public Sphere in Internet Age Widget

Howard Rheingold (sprout video) discusses the present crisis of MSM and bloggers with references back to the English Revolution. Frames this as an evolution in historic class conflicts and forms of participation. Mentions David Zaret’s book which criticizes Habermas’ public salon theory–emphasizing vulgar politics of religious factions in England. Does make one wonder where Michael Walzer’s reflections on this issue come in.

Takes us back through Walter Lipmann and Dewey in early 20th Century American thought.

Issue of whether and how citizens can communicate with the state.
