From space to cyberspace: a review of the current literature on the emerging cyberspace culture and the ways it affects the human identity, experience and interaction
This work aims at describing the changing conditions for the human subject due to technology and more recently due to the information technology. Exploring the changing perceptions of self in the urban space and in cyberspace, the previously closed self, opens out losing its borders and merges with the milieu. Many authors define this alteration as a disorder, in literature a schizophrenic subject is brought about concerning the erasure of the boundaries that keep the identity distinct. Hence, today the human subject stands in a transition, in the middle of a journey that leads from space to cyberspace, from order to disorder, or from paranoia to schizophrenia; however from time to time departure becomes the destination again and again.
