Joshua Cohen: ATTENTION: Dispatches from a Land of Distraction

Hosted by

Joshua Cohen’s collection of nonfiction, ATTENTION: Dispatches from a Land of Distraction, examines the effect of the internet and technology on the human mind. Cohen discusses divergent descriptions of ADHD, the economy of attention, and a revolutionary thought in Western philosophy: the attention span. From within a cultural environment antithetical to the spirit, Cohen offers the warmth of words to the numbness of numbers.
