Languages of publication
In today's world of little homelands and also of the global village which has been created by the mass media the question about the present day poleis arises. Poleis where citizens make decisions concerning their daily life of local, national communities and the future of whole civilization with the moral values as the inseparable element of it. Can the mass media domain be the poleis of today? Can the domain of public, face-to-face of communication used in the ancient Athens be replaced with the present day media debate, with interactivity being only a part of it? Is the present day world and its social, moral, cultural problems, denominational problems of national and global dimension objectively presented (represented) in the world of media - mediapolis? Or may it be only the sphere where instead of 'what is in the reality', 'what seems to be' is presented? The number of questions regarding the position of a human in the world of mediapolis is indefinite. The reflections below try to provide the answer to some of these questions.
