Information Technology in the Internet Era: Critical Theory Perspective

Artigo // Por Flavia Maria Santoro //

Abstract: The discussion brought by the critical theory philosophers, such as Theodor Adorno and Max Horkheimer, and more recently Andrew Feenberg, leads to wide-ranging questions about contemporary technologies. The contemporary investigation should be on whether the only form of reasoning is the scientific and technological, or there may be non-technical forms of reasoning applicable to social issues and day-to-day problems. Is it possible for the average individual (not an expert in technical terms) to decide or control the technology, in whose design he does not participate directly? The goal of this paper is to contribute to the discussion about the Philosophy of Technology presenting two possible perspectives of Critical Theory. The specific case of Information Systems coding through Social Networks is analyzed from the perspective of these authors, and a practical approach is presented.
