Beyond Cyberspace: Digital Dreams and Social Bodies
A sociology of cyberspace is proposed that is at once historical, material, and ethical. That is to say, cyberspace is viewed as much in terms of its continuities as its disjuncture with the past, with physicality, and with normative approaches. This is not to discount the novel features of cyberspace but rather to contextualize them and to argue that a sociology dealing with cyberspatial issues should be both grounded and critical. The etymology of ‘cyberspace’ hints at an initial perspective that leads into an agenda of questions relating to bodies, identities, and socialities, and to economies, polities, and globalities.
