    schema:description ""Is the informational world of smartphones and social media changing who we are and how we relate to others and the environment? Are we becoming informational organisms or 'inforgs', deeply enmeshed in a globe-spanning 'infosphere'? Luciano Floridi thinks so. In this exciting and provocative book, he considers the deeper implications of a future--almost upon us even now--in which we are always online, and the barriers between reality and the virtual world we inhabit when we switch on our computers finally dissolve. We are in the midst of a fourth revolution, he argues, as profound as those produced by Copernicus, Darwin, and Freud: a revolution set to change our sense of self, our relationships, society, politics, wars, and our management of the environment. We need to understand these changes and revise our ethics to reap the benefits and avoid the risks of this brave, new world."--Jacket."@en ;
