Marcus Boon, In Praise of Copying - PhilPapers
More options … Overview Content Contact Persons. Overview Aims and Scope German critic Walter Benjamin wrote some immensely influential words on the work of art in the age of mechanical reproduction. Although I purposefully avoided paying excessive attention to computers, the internet and social media, I think that there is a strong and helpful analysis of those things in my book. Whatever the advances in technology, our minds are still the fastest computers and still crank out more copies than any computer could do.
Pornography, spam, symbolic representations of infinity: our minds already make it all. In other words, processes of digital copying obey the same principles that I set out for other kinds of copying that seem more lo-fi: tactile contagion and a similarity that emerges from nonconceptual sameness.
If I can be allowed to point to a second aspect of the book, it would be the importance of what I call industrial folk cultures.
