Social self in a virtual world

Thomas Hansson ()

Abstract: Dialectic contradictions at work between construction and experiencing of social self by individual or collective influences. The human species is able to combine separate but related processes for social and material interaction by means of individual input to collective activity systems. It is, however, a bit of a mystery how the balancing process between activity, consciousness and personality materializes in modern artifacts, by means of social support and as virtual agency. This study suggests a way of dealing with the features of collective virtual personality.

Keywords: Activity; consciousness; personality; artifact; social support; dialectics; (follow links to similar papers)
