Is the Objectification Of Others Driven By An Honorable Motive?

Is the Objectification Of Others Driven By An Honorable Motive? | Cyborg Lives | Scoop.it

A group of researchers from the University of Kansas has now put forth a new explanation, termed “Subjective Uncertainty Theory” (SUT). The basic idea in its super-simplified form is that we’re occasionally so afraid of realizing we can’t understand a person’s complexities, we just pretend those complexities don’t exist and instead focus on their concrete traits (e.g. appearance, professional duties, IQ, etc.)

Love and sexuality are an important factor in any human relationships. However, what is new in Virtual Worlds is the ability to exercise those relationships without any real risk, external censure or imposition from an internal "super-ego".

Joli montage. Il est parfois nécessaire de se ressourcer : voir pousser un brin d'herbe, écouter un oiseau sans penser à Twitter, regarder un paysage sans vouloir le "capturer" et le livrer en pâture à Facebook. Redonner son importance au temps : le pouvoir d'enseignement du potager est bien plus fort que celui du supermarché! Ne pas renier le virtuel pour autant, toutes nos facettes sont utiles! Freud consulte-t-il sur FB :) ?

Canadian group studies impact of social networks on mental health | Cyborg Lives | Scoop.it

In an age when Internet devices are always on, meeting face-to-face is becoming increasingly rare as people choose to meet screen-to-screen. Goldfield wants to know what this new dynamic is doing to normal social interaction? How do these devices and social media services, such as Facebook, affect the way we socialize and communicate with each other? But, more than that, what impact do these social networks have on their user's mental health?
