Citações Harold Innis

„A change in the type of medium implies a change in the type of appraisal and hence makes it difficult for one civilization to understand another.“

—  Harold Innis
Context: The significance of a basic medium to its civilization is difficult to appraise since the means of appraisal are influenced by the media, and indeed the fact of appraisal appears to be peculiar to certain types of media. A change in the type of medium implies a change in the type of appraisal and hence makes it difficult for one civilization to understand another. 2007 edition, p. 29.

„The present Dominion emerged not in spite of geography but because of it.“

These boundaries included a vast north temperate land area extending from the Atlantic to the Pacific and dominated by the Canadian Shield. The present Dominion emerged not in spite of geography but because of it. Conclusion, p. 393.
