The Net Called Human Relations
lecture for the symposium - abstract

In this paper, the author will talk about two parallel metaphors - worlds: about the metaphor of the media net structure, which claims to be without borders, limits and restrictions; and about the world of real human relations, described as restrictive and hegemonic.
Why and how can the metaphor of one or the other world overlap and intersect?
And why do we soon find ourselves in the position of wishing to have some borders and limits?
