The widespread adoption of modern information technology leads to the total digitalization of culture. Galileo’s thesis “the book of nature is written in the language of mathematics”, which led to the mathematization of natural science, today is continued: “the book of culture is written in the language of numbers, in the language of Informatics”. Everything becomes a subject to digitalization: economy, military sphere, communications, politics, mass media, art, anthropology, etc. At the same time, the universal adoption of information technology poses serious challenges: the replacement of natural, God created reality, virtual reality; ubiquitous use of “cinematic effect” (H. Bergson); the more indirect modes of communication, “loneliness in the network”; opportunity of “electronic concentration camp”; utopian anthropological projects (transhumanism) etc. To discuss these and other caused by the process of total digitization of cultural issues is the aim of this Panel.
