Technological advances have a direct effect on the human being's material existence and its self-understanding. The monograph proposes that the self is an artificial object and shows that the Enlightenment's self-understanding of an intentional agent is, due to specific technologies, undergoing a fundamental transformation. The main claim is that a new understanding of the subject is required to avoid unfreedom in the territorialization of the digital world and its information.
David Rose is Professor of Social Ethics at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne. His major research interests concern cultural issues grounded in the history of ideas, particularly the writings of Hegel and Vico, and more generally in counter-enlightenment ethical thought.
