CALISE, Santiago Gabriel. Time and new technologies from the perspective of the systems theory. Rev. iberoam. cienc. tecnol. soc. [online]. 2013, vol.8, n.23, pp.89-111. ISSN 1850-0013.

According to many theorists, but also as said by laymen, the emergency of the new information and communication technologies (ICTs) has generated deep transformations on the way the relationship between time and space is daily conceived and experienced. This paper tries to problematize this relationship between ICTs and temporality, departing from Niklas Luhmann’s systems theory. In order to illuminate this relationship, it will be necessary to start with a rereading of the theorists who have already dealt with this problem. At the same time, it will be also indispensable to reconstruct Luhmann’s perspective on time and ICTs, even if this last matter was only briefly examined by the author. On these basis and supported on the results of empirical research, we will work on the temporal transformations produced on communication as a consequence of the emergency of ICTs as a media. As a corollary to this inquiry, we will observe the repercussions that this issue has provoked on consciousness.

Palabras clave : Temporality; Luhmann; Media; Communication.
