The cult of Manuel Castells

"Yet, in some ways, Castells is a "guru's guru." The breadth of his endeavour-a 20-year attempt to synthesise a total theory of the information age covering global economic, technological, social and cultural change-excites the imagination of other intellectuals. However, the sheer abstract complexity of the project puts it beyond the patience of a wider public. "

Es podria considerar prescriptor en qualsevol plantejament d'aquests temes. Ho justifica també, que el seu nom surt a moltes de les bibliografies a plans sobre la societat de la informació i el coneixement elaborats pels governs del diferents regions.
