Interactive Assignment in two parts Part One Please follow the above link, and after reading the discussion on Chris Bateman's blog, add some brief reflections in the comments section of the blog. Please keep comments relevant to the topics discussed there. Part Two Secondly, please return to this blog page and (in the comments section below), kindly offer a brief response to one or all of the following questions on digital media and philosophy. The dialogue form has been part of philosophy since Plato but what difference, if any, does online conversation make? What difference would a face-to-face conversation make (or not make)? Given Illich's and Postman's and so many others remarks on print media, does the digital change a thing? Besides the chance for interactive engagment what does the digital mediatization of philosophy entail and what is its working 'effect' (cue here Heidegger on the 'working' of the artwork, Benjamin's aura or The Halleluia Effect, The Interface Effect, all sundry other effects?) You are invited to add any other further reflection you might like.
