Story at IHE, with some particularly interesting remarks by philosopher Talbot Brewer (Virginia); an excerpt:

For Talbot Brewer, professor and chair of philosophy at the University of Virginia, the liberal arts need saving in part from the "black mirrors" so many of us are glued to each day. Cellular phones, computers and, especially for children, television, facilitate a kind of "reverse-Weberian," late capitalistic assault on our collective attention, he said. The effect is that we no longer know how to interact with the meaningful, valuable media that take time and effort to understand- that is, the bulk of what makes up the liberal arts. 
Calling attention a "vital resource," Brewer described it as "the medium of passion, of friendship, of love. The sign of our presence to one another, both in intimate spaces and in public. The antidote to listlessness and heedlessness." 
It's also the prerequisite "for any concerted activity, including the activities of reading, viewing, critical thinking, writing and intensive conversational exchange that are central" to the liberal arts, he said.
So amid the clamor of "manipulative messages when there suddenly appears something quite different, something called literature, or art or philosophy, it is not easy to open ourselves to this newcomer," Brewer continued.
