Welcome to the European Network for Social Intelligence (SINTELNET)
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 traditional concepts.
