Communication (Photo credit: P Shanks)

What sort of relationship do you have with your smartphone? The mobile revolution promises a future in which global communication is possible for all, affirming ideals of individual freedom. But what does technologically-mediated communication really mean for human relationships? Does it inevitably dehumanise us, or open up new possibilities for human interaction?

In this Cafe, Rupert Jenkinson (Cardiff Classical Education Forum) explores this issue with assistance from the theories of human communication developed by Martin Heidegger, Martin Buber and Jürgen Habermas.

We meet in the Cafe Bar at the Gate on Tuesday 20 May, from 8.00 – 10.00pm.
