RE: On philosophy, chatting and thinking

in #philosophy2 years ago

Thanks for your article. Unfortunately, I never read Plato. It is funny that you are emphasising the dialogue and the spoken word in these strange times of social distancing (I guess they mean bodily distancing). Aren't we all glued to the screens these days as the last possibility to communicate some ideas? I really miss old friends and our creative and inspiring exchange of thoughts. It is a total other quality.

Yes, it's a bit ironic maybe.

Yeah. Right. Although it is never the same. You cannot satisfactorily replace face-to-face conversation with digital communication. Although it helps something, I don't want to underestimate either. I once read that technology usually causes this effect, it brings us closer to the most distant people, but it distances us from the closest people.

Thank you for stopping by! Cheers!
