Ong explored the role of the spoken voice as it relates to human interiority as well as the psychological effects of writing’s development in fostering exteriority, a loss of voice, and a preference for the visible and objectively observable. Ong’s analyses offer potential insights for contemporary psychology’s rejection of radical positivism and its turn to discourse, narrative production, and the recovery of voice in individual human experience. Furthermore, his investigations of technology’s impact on human noetic processes address crucial questions about human differences in various fields of cross-cultural and ethnic psychological research.
