5. Literacy and Objectivism: Ignoring the Communal Context of Knowledge.

In terms of the consequences of literacy, this is to some extent another example of the general decontextualization of knowledge that can take place. But literacy does have additional effects that can much more specifically result in highly individualistic orientations and self-understandings. To give just one example, the breaking of the word’s connection with other actually existent persons can make literate people more aware of themselves as individuals.
