es - Crear redes es crear nuevas relaciones

Themes - 26 de noviembre de 2013

Hacer redes es crear nuevas relaciones. Relaciones que se refieren a la interacción y a la inserción en la comunidad humana, esto es la “polis”– como señaló Hannah Arendt en su libro “La condición humana” (1958): “La polis no es Atenas sino los atenienses”. Crear nuevas relaciones y hacer amigos es una subversión de todos los mecanismos de toma de decisiones y de control.
