Narcisse, une création de Prométhée : l'impact libérateur et anesthésiant d’internet sur la nouvelle génération grecque

Abstract : From the promethean man to Narcissus there is only a small step: technology. A lot of things change every time a new technology enters our lives.This thesis attempts to comprehend the way the new Greek generation makes use of the new cyber technology and how modern Greek people are influenced as well as transformed by this use. By means of a qualitative survey in the form of questionnaires administered to young people we attempted to explore how they use these media to satisfy basic needs of their social life such as information and communication, how they perceive their relation with the media and how they are influenced by them.By nature, internet is the medium which helps the individual to overcome his corporal limits extending parts of his nervous system to the medium. Moreover, Facebook gives the opportunity to each one of its users to project a profile created by himself and live within it. The user who watches the screen appears to be a contemporary version of Narcissus once again complying with new sensory perceptions. The computer connected to the internet is the major medium that causes these modifications.That’s what Prometheus did. His invention gave birth to a new human era. What becomes the principal objective in our day and age is without any doubt to move from the condition of pathetic Narcissus to the condition of the artful navigator in the virtual ocean. The present research has hopefully contributed to some extent to the social research related to the contemporary virtual era.
