14 Nadel's philosophy of writing biographies is that biographers need not interact with their subjects, but do need to appreciate their subjects' worth. As per Nadel, a biography should tell the reader who the subject is, not what the subject has achieved. 14 he is concerned that the briefer modes of communication encouraged by social networking media such as Twitter may change how we capture and narrate others' lives. He speculates biographies may become packed into small fragments, as self-expression in general gets condensed by the influence of the new media. 15 In his literary criticism, nadel analyzes text content.
