The controversies of self – from (info) ethics to cyber terror

Jefferson Cabral Azevedo, Rosalee Santos Istoe, Carlos Henrique Medeiros Souza, Bruna Moraes Marques


The media relations make possible new structural arrangements regarding the constructions of identities and new paradigms relating to ethical and moral assumptions. Psychic formation processes are influenced by several variables that are interrelated in an open system, converging in anthropological, environmental, genetic, psychological, historical and social factors that determine relational interaction behaviors. However, in virtual cities where flow-image, timelessness and non-place reign, they enable new psychic arrangements and a greater plasticity and speed in processing information and generating knowledge. At this conjectural point, where technology is a key factor that permeates the interactions and offers unknowns in the construction of identities, a new order without standards is established, which rules ethical parameters. The results catalyzed by the speed of exchanges of information characterize deviant and antisocial behaviors that can bring uncountable damage to every human being basic rights.
