Network and Power. An Axiological View of the Network Theory and Globalization
Languages of publication
The paper focuses on those aspects of global society which justify its perception as an information or network society. The keyword describing the essence of these social changes is the Latin term ‘inter’. The network society evolved thanks to the Internet, with its users sometimes referred to as – a portmanteau of Internet and Astronaut – the Internauts. Thanks to it, the mass media became the source of interactivity, and pushed towards interconnecting everything. As a result of this development, the concept of interdisciplinarity acquired a new, special meaning. Thanks to the Internet we now face a new formula of social interaction; the processes of internalisation and interiorisation acquired a new character, and the model of exercising power and politics has undergone dramatic changed.
