the first European festival on creativity

2017 Program

Event #16

Luciano Floridi

Thinking in networks

Thought is often a matter of the point of views from which we unconsciously set off, of the assumptions we never question, of premises so implicit they are invisible. To use an old but useful analogy, the eye is not able to see itself, but its perspective determines the way we see. The same is true for thought. Imagine if it were possible to work on our fundamental assumptions, influential and less evident, on our “Ur-Philosophie”, the deep philosophy that lies beneath thought. In which manner is digital communication influencing our Ur-Philosophie? How is our pre-critical manner of thinking changing? What happens to our most deep-seated ideas when the world shifts from a mechanistic mentality to one that has adapted to the concept of networks? Technology formats our way of thinking. And information technology does so even more radically.
