Philosophy at the crossroads. Is it possible to love wisdom in the information age?

Aleksandra Derra


The article takes the form of a thought experiment with a lot of assumptions which
are taken for granted. The author assumes that we are able to describe what the
information age is and that we live in the information society (which many see as
debatable). She enumerates and describes a number of important features which
characterize the information age, and she assumes that they can be actually detected
from our everyday reality. She reflects upon the role which philosophy can play in
the information age, considering many doubts about the chance for traditionally
understood philosophy to find its vital place in contemporary culture.
