An intensive one-day workshop taking place at the University of Dundee tackling the following questions and other related questions:
How enabling or disabling are concepts such as ‘the network’, ‘feedback’, and ‘information’ for contemporary forms of life? Is the Internet one or many things? Is the advent of the ‘Information Age’ something to be welcomed or feared? What role can philosophy play in thinking about information and communication technologies and forms of subjectivity emerging in relation to them?
This event will take place on Wednesday 1st April and is a collaborative initiative between the Scottish Centre for Continental Philosophy and the LABEX-sponsored ‘Sujet Digital’ research network centred on the University of Paris VIII.
