"Connected by the Ear"achieves the feat of marrying the two most important and most antagonistic postwar German thinkers on communication: Jurgen Habermas and Friedrich Kittler. Sean Franzel s archaeology illuminates both the bourgeois public sphere and discourse network 1800 by showing the romantic lecture to be the key cultural form in a pivotal moment of German intellectual history, a history long obsessed with the mediation of oral discourse and written text. Franzel lucidly lays bare the cultural genome of a mode which continues in our day of MOOCs and TED talks. The next time you hear a pedagogue (or president) call the class, public, or nation to converse, you will note that the romantic lecture is alive and well.
