Arguing against the cyber-revolutions mythology of progress which substitutes technology for morality, Schultze argues for giving equal attention to the habits of the heart (ethics).

The Internet is everywhere. Half of the new words added to the 2001 edition of the Random House Webster's College Dictionary were related to either the Internet or technology, as words such as dotcom, hacker, and cyberspace entered the mainstream of conversation. The Internet has changed the way we do business, shop, communicate, and even meet people. In many ways our lives are easier and more convenient. But what price do we pay for this convenience?
Habits of the High-Tech Heart is a provocative and fascinating look at the impact the Internet and digital technology have had on our society. It argues against the cyber-revolution's mythology of progress that substitutes technology for morality. Cyberculture breeds individualism at the cost of community and it values speed, efficiency, and convenience over quality, morality, and virtue.


The solution, Schultze argues, is not to dismantle our growing technologies but to pay more attention to the "habits of the heart" (discernment, moderation, wisdom, humility, authenticity, and diversity). These habits, which draw on the wisdom of the past and the virtues of the Judeo-Christian tradition, must reshape our understanding of digital technology. Schultze calls for a renewal of community and offers readers ways to live by habits of the heart in the information age.
