Lęk intymności, czyli mówienie prawdy w dobie internetu

Leszek Koczanowicz


In his late works Michel Foucault names parrhesia, an ability to tell the truth about oneself and the world, as one of most significant categories. Parrhesia is crucial for both democratic policy, as well as for an inner spiritual life. Foucalt analyses both aspects of parrhesia in the context of ancient philosophy and Christianity. But whichever the context, parrhesia is a difficult spiritual task causing a threat for those who practise it. It seems that today traditional categories have been switched and democratised parrhesia becomes a standard or even coercion, while the world of intimacy and privacy - a thing that ought to be feared and avoided. Key issue of the text is a question what happens to parrhesia in the democratic world of technology. The article search answer to how new technologies, the social media above all, change the nature of parrhesia within our private lives and in the political arena.
