The digital man?

  • Profile versus person
  • Geist Heidelberg, In dialogue

The digital space: Here I am human, here I can be (everything)? The Internet and digital applications expand the scope for thought and action. There are almost no limits to access to information, communication and social interaction.

Does this change our view of humanity? Does the human being remain a person or does he become an avatar? How do algorithms and applications influence our behaviour? Do we need new basic rights or just their consistent implementation in the digital world?
