Slavko Dolin?ek,Peter ?trukelj
Managing Global Transitions , 2012,
Abstract: In the paper, we propose somewhat different conceptualizations oftechnology, of a fundamental relationship between technology andwealth in a society, of technological capability, and of management oftechnology. We based our proposed conceptualizations on the currentgeneral and relevant technological practice. In order to infer these conceptualizations,we studied today’s largest companies worldwide in differentproduction and technology sectors as well as some general reportingon technology from technology-oriented media. These fundamentalconceptualizations may be of interest to all those who are practicallyor theoretically concerned with technology, wealth, technologicalcapability and management of technology, and who want to comprehendthe essence of technology and its relations to phenomena, such aswealth and management (‘to get the big picture’). At the end, we explainwhy there is a need inmodern companies tomanage technologiesand what a new paradigm of management of technology is, i. e. whatnew challenges and trends a modern management of technology has toface.

Personality disorders and modern culture  [PDF]
Francisco Martín Murcia
Psychology, Society & Education , 2009,
Abstract: In this work, the relation between the modern social context and personality —as an essential psychological entity— and its disorders were analyzed from a dialectic perspective. Therefore, I have specified the bidirectional influences of social paradigmaticchanges in modernity —and in the case of postmodernity— on the construction of personal identity. A historiography of the Self throughout the diverse eras and of the more relevant social changes was carried out, emphasizing the consequences in the development ofcharacter. The analysis includes a reflection on one of the pathologies of increasing incidence in modern societies: image disorders. In the discussion, the difficulties to organize the self in an extremely subjective world, which forces a person to self-realization asexistential task, is criticized.
The Culture of Criticism – an Ideal of the Modern Thought  [PDF]
Studii de Stiinta si Cultura , 2011,
Abstract: The modern criticism concentrated on a new human pattern meant to replace rationalityand the virtuous ancient behavior. The modern man is dominated by passions and interests thus hisbehavior is a passionate and interested one. But the end of an age represents only the end of anillusion, the dependences vary and they lead to new solutions imposed by the new social structure.The culture of duty available for the ancient times was changed by the moderns due to their focuson rights and freedom and is interpreted by the Postmodernism at the level of a new structure whichinvolves international organizations meant to decide the image of the world democracy. The cultureof criticism has become a communicative culture having political influences spread by the principleof federalization. The crisis of the modern world will have to face obstacles from the spiritual fieldand its effects will be extended over the present stage to a new human condition characteristic fornew premises of criticism.

Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2019.78026
Abstract: Currently, advertising is everywhere in the media environment we are in. Our lives are full of advertising, and advertising is an integral part of our lives. French advertising critic Robert Grange said, “We breathe nitrogen, oxygen and advertising every day”. Advertising is more than just a means of propaganda and business. It has its own distinctive characteristics of the times and is not acceptable. Neglected cultural phenomena, modern advertising culture has distinct characteristics of the times and traces of social life.
The enlightenment and the beginnings of modern Serbian culture  [PDF]
Trgov?evi? Ljubinka
Balcanica , 2006, DOI: 10.2298/balc0637103t
Abstract: The Enlightenment, mostly in its Austrian form, influenced in many ways the Serbs both in the Habsburg Empire and in the Principality of Serbia, still under Ottoman suzerainty. First, its emphasis on the value of knowledge and science raised the awareness of the importance of education and contributed to its development. Religious tolerance and anticlericalism placed Orthodox Serbs side by side with representatives of other nations and religions and helped them to liberate themselves from the strong traditionalist impact of their church. Both education and a new awareness of their own rights strengthened national consciousness, eventually leading to the creation of a nation state and modern national culture.

Abstract: When you switch on your computer and type up a letter, what language do you see? What about when you visit a website or play a computer game? Does your mobile phone speak your language? Chances are that each of these technological marvels of the modern age communicates with you in your own language. For many of us, this is so commonplace and seamless that we hardly give it a moment's thought but behind the scenes there is a whole industry dedicated to making sure that technology bridges the gap between language and culture without you even noticing.

Keywords: visual culture, media technology, post-technology times, amusement Résumé La culture visuelle est déja devenue la réalité dans les domaines de culture et de diffusion. La diffusion de la culture visuelle constitue un défi considérable pour la diffusion culturelle traditionnelle. Le virage visuel qu’il s’en suit change l’environnement d’existance de l’homme : la réflexion rationnelle tablant sur la langue fait place à la pensée sensible s’appuyant sur la vision ; l’image devient l’outil de la pensée en rempla ant la langue. Le monde des images fictives ayant pour foyer la suprématie technique est un monde des informations et signes dominé par le modèle, le code, le signe, et la cybernétique. Les médias font égaler la réalité ficfive et la réalité présente par l’explosion interne de la réalité. Des images visuelles super-réelles et super-claires arrivent à flot continu. Donc, le grand publique se tait, on manque de communication et s’enferment sur soi-même. La société, pleine de malententus, dépérit faute de feedback. Les nouveaux médias qui demandent peu de technique permettent à chacun de devenir le sujet de l’action de diffusion. La nouvelle ère où la diffusion individuelle et la diffusion de masse s’entremêlent est ainsi créée. Avec le soutien de la technique, des contenus de diffusion de toutes sortes apparaissent s
