Additions:
Mcluhan was not there when the world wide web exploded and could not work with that medium; instead, //he preserved the book as an object and as a form of communication, but reconfigured and redesigned it no longer on the basis of the Euclidean line, but of the tribal circle.//
//He conceived the printed page as a new interface// on which to plug in and translate the new electric simultaneity by means of a renewed approach to ancient alphabetic and visual patterns.
//He readjusted the traditional syntax in order to grasp the new sensorial implications// encouraged by electric media, developed inclusive and paratactic patterns making an interesting use of discontinuous forms already explored by modernist writers and artists, at the same time retrieving ancient educational precepts.
By so doing //he retrieved also a more general approach to knowledge and experience//, in contrast with a too narrow specialisation, typical, he insisted, of the mechanic age (the age of literacy), but not longer useful to understand the simultaneity characterising the new electric world (the age of post-orality).

Additions:








[McLuhan] developed a new method of investigation (the ‘mosaic’) still based on literacy; and yet, he started to conceive the book and the written page as powerful interfaces to meet and explore new forms of orality, in that anticipating the later hypertext heuristic.
