A lecture series full of examples and philosophical analyses. 

In his book Zullen we contact houden (Shall We Keep in Touch), Rob van Gerwen proposes a painful diagnosis: we only communicate via devices. Because of technology, our way of life and our minds are being threatened. Fortunately, Van Gerwen offers a way out. We need to create a new philosophical mindset in which there is room for human subjectivity.

Rob van Gerwen (1957) teaches philosophy of the arts, among other things, at Utrecht University and has written several books about philosophy.
