"Teletheory is the application of grammatology to television in the context of schooling, not as a way to interpret or criticize television, or rather, video, but to learn from it a new pedagogy. This application or consultation assumes first that the theories of Derrida and the other French poststructuralists (supported by certain art practices) offer the best hope for understanding an era in which the technology of culture is shifting from print to video; and second that this understanding includes not only a pedagogy, but a program for popularization capable of reuniting the advanced research in the humanities disciplines with the conduct of everyday life. Teletheory (the book) offers a rationale and guidelines for a specific genre--mystory--designed to do the work of schooling and popularization in a way that takes into account the new discursive and conceptual ecology interrelating orality, literacy, and videocy."--Preface.
