SENSITIVITY IN THE FUTURE: THE PHENOMENAL SELF AND ITS EMBODIMENT

Д. В. Чирва

Abstract


The article deals with a one of many conceptually possible scenarios of transformation of the sphere of privacy and publicity caused by the further development of theory of neural correlates of consciousness and corresponding technologies of human brain stimulation. The phenomenal self that constituted an area of absolutely private experience during the preceding history of humankind could possibly loose its uniqueness and become objectivated with the help of neuroscience generated relevant progress in digital and medical technologies. The transformation of the status of subjectivity is analyzed by analogy with the change in human’s cognitive capacities being extended with the help of relevant technologies.

Keywords
