Description - Sociopolitics by Paris Arnopoulos
This collection of six essays explores Sociopolitics as the process of political development in postmodern societies in their three aspects: informatic, ecologic and technologic. Within this conceptual framework, the essays examine the politics of telecommunication as well as environmentalism and developmentalism in an era of transition from consumer to coserver societies. The main thesis of this book is that the emerging postindustrial era in the turn of the millennium is characterised by a convergence of politics, technics and physics. As the public affairs of social responsibility, technical sophistication and environmental concern, this book is based on a novel theory of Sociophysics, emphasising the metaphors between natural and cultural systems. From the global perspective, this study joins the perennial debate on the human condition and the new dilemmas facing us presently.
