La "svolta apocalittica" negli studi sul digitale: introduzione

Gabriele Balbi, Quaderni di teoria sociale, 2018

As has been the case with many other media in history, theoretical debate on digital media and more generally on digitisation has ranged - and to a large extent still does - between what Umberto Eco would have called integrated and apocalyptic visions. On the one hand, the celebration of technological innovation in terms of a disruption towards an oppressive and anti-democratic past; on the other hand, the underlining of new forms of social control and an inevitable future in dark and totalitarian shades. The hypothesis is that, in the case of digital, the integrated phase has slowly come to an end or, in any case, is now less visible than the apocalyptic and critical phase, which emerged at least from the early 2000s and which is now experiencing considerable success, driven by some of the "classics" of digital criticism.
