O kursie

Regardless of what metaphysical vision of values we accept, it must be acknowledged that they are an essential dimension of the social world. This is no different in the digital world, which, with the dynamic advances in technology, has become as natural a part of our lives as the contacts and relationships we make in person, in the physical world. This raises many questions about the axiology of digital transformation. The course is devoted to a general introduction to the issue of values in the era of the digital revolution and to an analysis of selected problems related to privacy, adequacy and respect, values that appear to be central in the digital world. At the same time, the way in which these values are interpreted is relatively unencumbered by philosophical or, more generally, worldview beliefs, thus avoiding much discussion of their scope.
