If you want to blow your cranium wide open with considerations of the history and meaning of oral culture (vs. literary culture)... then this book will certainly do that. What a strange and wonderous subject it is. I read this book to gain deeper insight into McLuhan's use of the terms orality and literacy... and I'm glad I did. Ong is an INCREDIBLY clear writer on a subject which... in lesser hands... or perhaps in the "greater hands" of some half-witted intellectual... might have descended the reader into academic jargon. But Ong's command of the subject and his obvious humanism keeps him from abusing the reader or torturing the subject. The book isn't always super-exciting... but sometimes it is... and sometimes it's just unbelievably enlightening. Like all great things... you have to show up and wait and be ready. Otherwise, you will never know.

Ong is one of the most mind-blowing writers in the field of literacy studies/linguistics, and yet he manages to write such complex concepts in very digestable, flowing language. It takes a true master of his subject to be able to make his work so approachable while simultaneously pushing you to expand your notion of what impacts the transition from oral to a text-based/visual society will have.

This book contains an excellent explanation of the difference between oral and literate cultures, and the features that distinguish them. In one of the earlier chapters, Ong makes clear what it is about oral peoples that drives literate people crazy. By reading it, I got a lot of clarity on why reasoning requires writing, and exactly what is missing from the reasoning ability of non-reading people. Ties in very neatly with Ayn Rand's theory of concepts and also explains why the ancient Greeks made such enormous progress in a short period of time once they developed the ability to record new thoughts in writing. Ong's other chapters I found less useful and not so original, but his tight, integrated summary of the differences between orality and literacy made the book more than worthwhile for me.

We type, we print. This is technology. We speak, we write, we read. This is human nature. Or is it?

Printing and computers emerged as technology. But so did writing. Writing is so natural to us that we forget it is a human creation - we can not even name what came before it (oral literature is a revealing oxymoron).

Ong convinces us that writing restructured our consciousness, and so does this little book. This technical, scholarly and at time tedious book is an eye opener. It shows that what seems like a given is possibly the most fundamental reshaping of ourselves in the history of humanity.

Those fond of Homer or Plato will wonder how they could have studied them seriously without the prism of orality vs literacy. The Iliad and Odyssey are oral poems - can we imagine what it takes to compose a tens of thousand words epic without taking a single note, without writing a single verse and without an outline? The Socrates discourses - discourses! - are the first steps of written analytic thoughts in a Society were rhetoric was king.

Beyond antic work the orality perspective is relevant for the full history of thoughts. Literature became less and less influenced by the oral constraints, shifting from the episodic epics to the modern well constructed novel. Teaching evolved from recitation and rhetoric to analytical thoughts.

Grasping orality allows a better understanding of human nature, not only by offering a glimpse of what primitive society's thoughts might be, but by putting the evolution of thoughts in a new light. Differences in today's societies often reflect their degree of literacy, i.e., the maturity of their written thought process. The Flynt effect - the significant increase in IQ in western societies over the last century - is a symptom of this influence. Societies only recently exposed to writing fair much lower on IQ tests. IQ tests that western experts devised to be a-cultural are in fact rooted in an advanced writing-centric culture. So much that the experts themselves are oblivious to that effect (the more a-cultural the test the stronger the Flynnt effect).

Ong wants us to glimpse into what our consciousness was before writing, to feel it if not to adopt it, and to understand how transformative that emergence must have been.

The orality part is truly fascinating. This is a topic that I had never thought about and it is truly fascinating.
The literacy part, not so much, although the transition from orality to literacy is very interesting.
A must read.
Karg
Intense book that was required for a college course. Make sure you use a highlighter- lots of new concepts and vocabulary.
Gunos
Really interesting and relevant read. I had it for a college course. The information is for the most part easily accessible and digestible, though Ong sometimes goes off on tangents that I struggled to follow. There's some criticism on the accuracy of his claim on how writing affects human consciousness, but it's still a fun theory and has some practical uses.
