ABSTRACT

The author is reflecting on the fact that a modern man is living in a rather intimate relationship with new information and communication media, starting thus various connections and degrees of integration with these media. A human subject is therefore “homo medialis“ (digitalis, interneticus, informaticus), existing on the interface, virtualised, augmented, hybridised with the technology of new media. The author believes that virtual cyberspace is bringing a man a new living space, a space that shares the idea of humanizing effect. It is also becoming a new existential dimension in which he is not pardoned from “ars vivendi“ and humanly proper existence and actions – “ethos.” In this context, the author is studying what humanizing effect stems from new media and cyberspace generated by them. Further, she wants to know how life “ars vivendi“ and its corresponding ethos in cyberspace can be achieved. She observes that a human subject connected with the new media exists transversally – in a variety of relationships, with different compositions of reality. Through them, he takes part in humanizing communication and experience in cyberspace. He is incorporated in this dialectically – his experience both is and becomes individual and collective at the same time. According to the author, despite plurality of self-images and identities in cyberspace a human subject must still remain necessary and irreplaceable. Only this way his “ars vivendi” and its corresponding ethos, helpful to the others, can be evident here.

Keywords: new information and communication media, virtual cyberspace, homo medialis, humanizing effect, “ars vivendi”, ethos.
