1KHO 113: The Digital Substitute: Can Technology Replace our Most Valuable Relationships? | Andy Crouch, The Life We're Looking For

The 1000 Hours Outside Podcast

I had the immense privilege of interviewing Andy Crouch for a second time! Amongst many, many accomplishments Andy is the author of the new book "The Life We're Looking For: Reclaiming Relationship in a Technological World." In this episode we discussed the promises and consequences of innovation, and how technology has the power to shape our relationships and interactions with one another. Crouch shared his insight on how for the most valuable things in life, there are no digital substitutes. He also touched on the idea that technology gives us simulations of recognition that ultimately aren’t satisfying. Crouch emphasized that so much is at stake in the way we handle technology, and how it is important for us to understand the role of machines and their need for machine-like environments to operate autonomously. He also challenged us to consider doing something harder and better, rather than just relying on technology to make our lives easier. Overall, the interview provided a thought-provoking perspective on the impact of technology on our relationships and the way we live our lives. After listening to this one, you'll be motivated to be a "three-plane person." :) Crouch’s book offers valuable insights and practical steps for reclaiming relationships in a technological world. I highly recommend checking it out! Learn more about Andy Crouch here >> https://andy-crouch.com/ Check out his new book here >> https://amzn.to/3H6JiL7

Andy Crouch on Taking Back Our Humanity from Technology

The Long Game

Very few people are happy with the way technology has come to dominate our lives, argues author Andy Crouch, and he thinks it will take a while for humans to reclaim autonomy from machines. “I rarely meet anyone who thinks, ‘Oh, it's really working quite well,’” Crouch, the author of a new book, said in an interview. “I just don't meet anyone who thinks we're in great shape and should just keep kind of on the path we're on.”Crouch’s book, “The Life We’re Looking For: Reclaiming Relationship in a Technological World,” identifies one of the core problems of our time as a “breakdown of recognition.”“Our neurology is actually wired for this kind of face-to-face encounter. It's when another person really attends to me and knows what I'm feeling, and in a way thinking, that I can fully be myself,” said Crouch, a former executive editor at Christianity Today magazine who has written four other books on culture-making, the ethical and moral uses of power, and how to use technology rather than be used by it. There are, Crouch said, “fewer and fewer settings that I'm in where I can expect that another person knows who I am, knows what it's like to be me.” Crouch has already written a book in 2017 called “The Techwise Family,” which has plenty of practical advice. But his latest book is harder to categorize, as Crouch struggles with how to recover our humanity. His answers to this question are unconventional.
