Information Ethics, Responsibility and Sustainability
Co-ordinators: Tomáš Sigmund, Wolfgang Hofkirchner
This project will deal with topics of Information Ethics (e.g., information privacy, information accuracy, information property, digital divide etc.) and related issues.
Follow-up project of Systems Approaches to Information Ethics.
Joint project between Faculty of Informatics and Statistics, University of Economics, Prague, and GSIS.
Duration 2020 – 2022.
Author: Wolfgang Hofkirchner
Starting from the book Emergent Information, emergentism, systemism and informationism are applied to the fields of social theory, the theory of information society and the theory of technology design in the age of global challenges. The new book makes the case for a Critical Social Systems Theory, a Critical Information Society Theory, and a Critical Theory of Techno-Social Systems Design. By doing so, principles are developed that are key for the techno-eco-social transformation towards a global sustainable information society.
Title and subtitle of the book changed: The Logic of the Third. A Paradigm Shift to a Shared Future for Humanity. Read the preface to understand why.

Corona was slowing down the process and working closely with the protagonists was not possible. Hence, together with senior producer Markus Fischer (Fischerfilm) it was decided to resize the project to a TV documentary (45-60 minutes). Additional shooting days were required. The title was changed to "Das Lernen (wieder) lernen".
Film project. Premiere: March 2022.
