Message And Medium Is Not The Message

- Indeed, relaying content through abbreviations can often portray undesirable or unintended messages. A similar effect can be seen when using language typical to one medium while using different medium, such as text-speak in emails. The latter is most fundamental in demonstrating how message and medium are linked, as each medium has an intrinsic set of expectations and conventions concerning vocabulary and punctuation. Umberto Eco argues ‘the medium is not the message; the message becomes what the receiver makes of it, applying to it his own codes of reception’, but if those codes have already been defined for him by social conventions surrounding that medium, then the message is predetermin...   [tags: English language, Lingua franca, Mass media]

The best way to start unraveling his theory, is to get a general understanding of the terms used in his famous quote. In McLuhan’s own words, a medium is simply “an extension of ourselves.” Simply put the medium personifies or enhances what we as humans cannot do on our own....   [tags: Media]

The Message Of The Gospel

- There are no “gospels” written by various authors with different meanings, but rather the message of the Gospel is one. It is the same message of the Gospel in each of the writing by the various authors. Before we can study how the Gospels “differ” from each other we must first recognize that the message of the one Gospel is the unchanged truth. This truth is simple yet profound, which is that the salvation of God is an open invitation to all who are willing to partake of it. This universal truth is accomplished through the writings of the four Gospel accounts and is especially evident in the Pauline writings....   [tags: New Testament, Jesus, Gospel, Gospel of Matthew]

The Medium is the Message

- The Medium is the Message McLuhan’s work with literature and culture produced the revolutionary thought that “the medium is the message.” In other words, cultures are changed not only by the “content” of technology, but also by the technology itself. The basic “content” of technology is easy to recognize. The content of the railway would seem to be transportation; the content of the Internet would seem to be information. But McLuhan’s idea that the medium proclaiming the “content” is itself the message is a hard one to understand....   [tags: Technology Media McLuhan Essays]

The Medium Is the Message

- Jesus' portrayal in the Gospel of John is very much devoted to the works and miracles that are performed by Jesus, rather than the way his life is led day to day. In this manner, readers of John get a more descriptive version of Jesus' life; the details of his life are condensed, and the story surrounding the included details are elaborated on. It would seem that John is more concerned with the meaning and reaction to the words that he writes rather than the detailing of a course of events. My personal suppositions of why John is written in this manner are varied, but may be interelated despite the differences....   [tags: Religion]

- A Message of Awareness James Joyce’s book Dubliners, is composed of several intriguing short stories. Joyce’s main emphasis is to send a “wake up call” to the people of Dublin about the appalling conditions of Ireland. In a letter to his publisher Joyce tells him that he “seriously [believes] that [the publisher] will retard the course of civilization in Ireland by preventing the Irish people from having one good look at themselves in my nicely polished looking-glass” (qtd. in Beja 33). Joyce proves his assertion through his use of characters and situations in the short stories “The Boarding House,” “A Little Cloud,” and “The Dead.” In addition, autonomy and responsibility play a major role...   [tags: Essays Papers]

The New Testament: Mythology, Truth and the Message

- Notably, Bultmann’s approach is less as a debunker and more as an interpreter: his idea of the NT is a kind of pure theology written in the poetry of narrative. Therefore, the narrative elements are not important they are means of expressing a theological insight born of an encounter with God. Particularly, Jesus’ the death and resurrection are not two separate events, or two halves of one event. Christ simultaneously is crucified and God resurrects him to conquer death, is a singular event. As a result, the act of proclaiming Christ transcendence of the fallen world results in the person experiencing an encounter and relationship with Christ....   [tags: Christianity, relgious beliefs]
