Humanist’s profiles. Digital Profiles

Sandra Leticia Reyes Álvarez

There has never been such an opportunity for discussion, of critic as in the era of social networks. However, if we take traditional militant stance it seems insufficient. At other times, if we take a moder academic position, we deem unworthy that “space for debate” because we think that it parts with certain abilities, qualities or characteristics of the intellectual, philosopher and humanist. The null value of a dispute on facebook or twitter is questioned, but it is rarely questioned what abilities or characteristics define an intellectual and if these abilities have or have had any effect within and outside the institutional framework of its own intellectual-humanisticwork. The problem I’d like to focus on is: how we adhere to certain profile that we move to the digital world assuming it will work the same and that it pretends the same finalities, but that we rarely we analyze its effectiveness today.
