Cyberspace as a realm of pan-human creativity
Kyselova, Y. (2011). Cyberspace as a realm of pan-human creativity, and its role in bridging the gaps of postmodern society. First prize in the competition of research papers within the National student’s academic competition in philosophy and religion studies (Donetsk, 2011).
This research won first prize in the National student’s academic competition in philosophy and religion studies held in Donetsk in 2011, and later became the part of my bachelor thesis. Based on Marshall McLuhan’s idea that the change of dominant communication channels and vectors shapes corresponding information revolutions, I extrapolate his periodisation tracing one more paradigmatic shift related to the invention of dialogical means of internet communication called Web 2.0. Then I analyse the influence of this shift that provides conditions for the creative transformation of society and the emergence of a new kind of social actor.
