Two more Isar-Kanal Lectures, given by Peter Herrmann, currently visiting Researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Social Law and Social Policy [section social law] are now available. The second lecture looks under the title
Digitisation – Morals, Politics and Responsibility
Digitisation, highlighting that Responsibility has to be seen in a new light, namely and again the light of real publicness.
The reference to Popper and falsificatioism in simple terms
There is no point in waiting for black swans, it is necessary to bread them!
The third of this short series of Isar-Kanal Lectures, titled
Digitisation – Meta-Methodological Reflections
highlights that much of the supposedly new issues are very much old questions around socialisation, pushing towards a new stage and thus looking at
- the greatest good for the greatest number
- the volonteeé générale
- the volonté de tous
- all dealing with the issue of publicness as control of production, the means of production and even more so the publicness of control of societal value.
Thus, all moral boils down to the question of the mode of production.
