Issue:  Volume 44, № 3

Rubric:  Human Being. Culture. Society

Annotation:  The authors emphasize that the current state of culture is determined by information and communication technologies. The advantages of these technologies are unconditional, but the intensity of their implementation does not allow us to comprehensively consider them - we are always included in the process of their becoming. Еhe authors focus their attention on elected problems - the existence of the body in real and virtual space, the constant involvement in communication in the network, the security of the information space and virtual communication for a real person. The totality of these problems allows one to say, on the one hand, about the illusory nature of modern society, of communication and of human, and, on the other hand, of the need for illusions for humanity in its everyday life.The authors concluded that immersed in the illusory world of digital reality, it is necessary to seek and find ways of preserving the real person, Homo Genus, at least until we ourselves become an illusion.

Keywords:  information society, cyber-reality, self-identification, virtual reality, virtual space.
