Samenvatting

In one hundred lean and incisive statements, Douglas Rushkoff argues that we are essentially social creatures and that we achieve our greatest aspirations when we work together-not as individuals. Yet today society is threatened by a vast antihuman infrastructure that undermines our ability to connect. Money, once a means of exchange, is now a means of exploitation; education, conceived as a way to elevate the working class, has become another assembly line; and the internet has only further divided us into increasingly atomised and radicalised groups. Team Human delivers a call to arms. If we are to resist and survive these destructive forces, we must recognise that being human is a team sport. In Rushkoff's own words: Being social may be the whole point . Harnessing wide-ranging research on human evolution, biology and psychology, Rushkoff shows that when we work together we realise greater happiness, productivity and peace. If we can find others who understand this fundamental truth and reassert our humanity-together-we can make the world a better place to be human.

Recensie(s)

A vivid thinker, Rushkoff is an insightful and acerbic antidote to Facebook, cultural hegemony, and the corporatization of everything. -- Seth Godin, bestselling author of The Dip, Linchpin, and What to Do When It's Your Turn (and It's Always Your Turn) Team Human' presents a convincing central argument and sometimes delights, particularly in Rushkoff's roasting of the techno-solutionists who refuse to challenge antihuman values. -- Engineering and Technology Rushkoff deals with heavyweight topics with a light touch, and Team Human is a joy to read - witty, accessible, and highly quotable. -- Make Wealth History Mr Rushkoff... a vibrant thinker of the online age. -- The Economist An astonishing, paradigm-shifting must-read for all inhabitants of the twenty-first century. Precisely and cogently written. Rushkoff's best work so far. -- Grant Morrison [Rushkoff] paints our current predicament with infectious elan and energy. -- The Wall Street Journal Can the revolution start already? This book will help us. Thank God for Douglas Rushkoff. -- Parker Posey In Team Human, [Rushkoff] enumerates the ways connectedness matters, and argues that the technology we think connects us today is in fact tearing us apart... his cause is worthy: The first step toward reversing our predicament is to recognize that being human is a team sport'... -- New Scientist
