520 8  As the technological phenomenon known as the worldwide web
       permeates civilization, it creates some cultures and 
       destroys others. In this pioneering book, philosopher 
       Thomas Langan explores "virtual reality"Can inherently 
       contradictory phrase"and the effects of technology on our 
       very being. In our present-day high- technology 
       environment, making simple, everyday decisions is 
       difficult because the virtual world we've created doesn't 
       necessarily operate according to the old "common sense." 
       To retain our intellectual fitness, we must, Langan argues,
       consider these essential questions: If virtual reality is,
       in fact, reality, what is this life that we are caught up 
       in? What is being within the context of virtual reality? 
       How can we establish a system for distinguishing truth 
       from fiction? Although technology minimizes distances 
       between people and makes the information they seek more 
       accessible, it simultaneously blurs the line dividing fact
       from falsehood and real from virtual. An individual's 
       intellectual survival is threatened as technological 
       advancement challenges our collective understanding of 
       what reality is. Because much of the information that is 
       presented as fact simply works to fulfill a specific 
       agenda, we cannot accept as truth everything that appears 
       on the internet or in the media. To survive, we must learn
       to manage our lives and resources despite the flood of 
       information we are bombarded with daily. Addressing the 
       general educated reader, Surviving the Age of Virtual 
       Reality expertly interweaves the worlds of technology and 
       philosophy, pushing the analysis of this technological and
       human phenomenon to new depths.
