Communication, technologies, pouvoir

The journal Quaderni explores the field of communication and its vital relationships with technology and power.

Communication is everywhere: in the human as well as the natural sciences, in the media, in politics, in business. It is the new religion. As its influence grows, communication must take a number of ideological and epistemological detours. It emerged as a social value only in response to the fragmentation of society, of politics, of science. But does this mean that communication in general should be rejected outright, as an ideology? Not at all. Rather, we need to reveal, discriminate and distinguish among its uses.

Quaderni was founded by Lucien Sfez in 1987. It is supported by the Centre national du livre.
