The digital revolution has caused many fundamental changes for both individuals and society at large, some of which are now placing doubt on the very accomplishments of civilization. Medialization means the collective relocation of interests and values to the realm of the media. Media platforms today take a spot front and center in our lives. But, one may ask, what are we looking for in cyberspace? What is there to be found there and what not? In this volume the author looks at the many achievements of mankind from various vantage points of Media Studies and offers a number of examples to support the case. Of particular interest is the discussion of the individual and collective dangers that lie before us.
