Verloren unter 100 Freunden

Author: Sherry Turkle

Genre: Social Science

Google, Facebook, E-mail und Online-Games haben unser Leben fest im Griff. Wie wird unsere Zukunft aussehen? Wir wollten sie als smarte „Diener“ unseres Alltags, nun sind sie unsere Herren. Sie sollten uns helfen, Zeit zu sparen, nun sind sie zu Zeitfressern sondergleichen geworden. Wir wollten sie programmieren, jetzt programmieren sie uns. Wenn insbesondere junge Leute hemmungslos in Blogs, Chats, Kontaktforen und Onlinewelten abtauchen, hat das einen tieferen Psychologischen Grund: Menschliche Beziehungen erscheinen zunehmend kompliziert und verletzend. Dafür bietet das Netz Kontakt ohne wahre Intimität, Gemeinschaft ohne Risiko, Nähe mit ausreichendem Sicherheitsabstand. Der moderne Mensch hat oft 100 Facebook-Friends, aber keinen einzigen echten Freund. Computer und Internet geben uns die Freiheit, überall zu arbeiten – in Wahrheit sind wir überall „gemeinsam einsam“. Sherry Turkle zeigt, wie Technologien zunehmend die Funktionsweise unseres Geistes und unser Gefühlsleben beeinflussen. Sie führt uns mit aktuellen Studien und drastischen Fallbeispielen vor Augen, welche ernsten Konsequenzen die gedankenlose Hingabe an die digitalen Verführer hat. Aber sie verdammt die Cyberwelt keineswegs als Teufelszeug. Denn wir haben durchaus die Chance, ihre immer grenzenloseren Möglichkeiten verantwortungsvoll zu nutzen.

Maintaining Long Distance and Cross Residential Relationships

Author: Laura Stafford
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781135607975
Release Date: 2004-12-13
Genre: Family & Relationships

This thought-provoking volume offers an innovative and intriguing approach to the study of long-distance relationships. Author Laura Stafford examines romantic long-distance relationships and then expands the conception of long-distance relationships to include other relational types. She summarizes literature across the social sciences on various types of long-distance relationships and extracts themes and patterns across the relational types. In so doing, she reconsiders approaches to and offers an expanded vision of relational maintenance. By expanding her scope beyond romantic relationships, Stafford includes those that span residences and relational types, such as noncustodial parent-child and geographically and residentially separated adult children and parents. She contends that face-to-face interaction is not necessary to maintain healthy relationships, and questions the assumption that maintaining, rather than terminating, a particular relationship is always best for the involved parties. With its interdisciplinary approach to challenging commonly held assumptions about communication and close relationships, Maintaining Long-Distance and Cross-Residential Relationships will be engaging reading for scholars in communication, psychology, sociology, mass communication, and family studies. It is also appropriate for special topics graduate courses on long-distance relationships and human communication, and will serve as a unique supplemental text for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in interpersonal, relational, and family communication and family studies.
