The World of an Expanded Reality Generated by Computers

(Original title: Počítačem generovaný svět rozšířené reality)
Filozofia, 65 (2010), 4, 378-382.
Type of work: Young Philosophy
Publication language: Czech

The aim of the paper is to offer an interpretation of U. Eco’s hypperrelaity and J. P. Baudrillard’s simulacrum as related to the conceptions of mixed reality and virtua-lity continuum (Milgram, Kishino), which have been articulated in the laboratories of communication technology in the early 1990s. The paper tries to show the interference point of the two approaches – philosophical (semiotic) and technical ones, as well as the possibility and necessity of revisiting some traditional philosophical question and categories, such as humanity or reality.
