SINTELNET: Network of Excellence for Social Intelligence

Exploring the interplay of Information Technologies, Philosophy, Humanities and the Social Sciences
FP7-ICT-2009-C Project No. 286380


Traditional distinctions between the natural, the social and the artificial are becoming more and more blurred as radically new forms of Information Technology-enabled social environments are formed. These changes create the need to re-explore basic concepts of Philosophy, Humanities and Social Sciences. The aim of the European Network for Social Intelligence is twofold:

To look into those IT-enabled domains as a means for the critical examination of those basic concepts and,
To propose new approaches to understand and develop future IT-enabled social situations, by adapting and applying traditio-nal concepts.
