Abstract [en]

KNOWLEDGE AND COMMUNICATION IN THE COMPUTER AGE was organized by The Institute af Tema Research at the University of Linköping, Sweden. with support from The Bank of Sweden Tercentenary Foundation, and the Swedish Council for Planning and Coordination of Research.

Modern information technology has brought radically new conditions for human knowledge both for the individual human belng and on common, collective levels as well. How is the knowledge of today built up, how is it distributed? What do these changing conditions mean for baslc human quallties such as personality, responsibllity and communication between human beings? How is knowledge used, by whom and for what purposes in a changing and increasingly complex society? Does the intelligibllity of lif e and reality change? All these questions are present in dilierent senses and to different extents in various parts of life and society. The aim of the symposium was to shed light on the importance of same of the questions. Particular attention was paid to children and young people growing up in the new computer culture.
