The article examines the situation associated with the spread of social networks, which brought not only new communication opportunities, but also the risks of blurring the boundaries between privacy and publicity. People voluntarily share personal data in exchange for public acceptance. This information is recorded and studied by various government and commercial institutions. The danger to information privacy as a right to control access to personal information is aggravated by the peculiarities of online communication, which is characterized by “context collapse”: (...) the merging of different audiences with different norms and values. Content posted on social media is searchable beyond a specific point in time and situation. If offline communication involves a foreseeable number of interlocutors, there is an “invisible audience” on social networks, which leads to information asymmetry. However, despite the fact that most users are aware of the potential dangers of privacy breaches, they share personal information on social networks. This phenomenon is called the privacy paradox. The reasons for this behavior are a lack of technical and social skills, a reluctance to spend time and energy on measures to minimize risks, a desire to have wide social connections and skepticism about the effectiveness of the efforts being made. The behavior of users on social networks is influenced primarily by factors such as age and education. The most concerned about the preservation of privacy are young people and middle-aged people, as they have to manage the most complex social relations. (shrink)

One could say that the central aim of Brittan’s study of Kant’s philosophy of mathematics and physics is to place that philosophy within the historical context of modern attempts to "justify," or in other terms, to give "epistemological foundations," to the mathematical sciences. In Brittan’s account, it was Kant’s unique achievement to expose the error of "reductionism" committed by all such attempts, and to give philosophical reflection on the exact sciences another direction which, with some modifications, is still fruitful today. (...) With the help of Kant, Brittan would expose the problems of the scientific thought not only of early modern metaphysicians and empiricists, but of contemporary logicians and philosophical analysts, who perpetuate the reductionist error.

Wood aims at correcting an undue emphasis upon the negative or critical aspect of Kant’s theological thought. He seeks to achieve this object through two distinct inquiries: into the positive component of Kant’s rational theology, chiefly the account of the ens realissimium [[sic]] as the necessary ideal assumed by reason in its attempt to arrive at a complete determination of the properties of things, presented in the "Ideal of Reason" in the "Dialectic" of the first Critique, ; into the strengths (...) and weaknesses of the criticisms of the ontological and natural proofs of the existence of a supreme being, found chiefly in sections 3-7 of the "Ideal of Reason". The author here is centrally concerned with salvaging the ontological argument from Kant’s famous and still highly regarded attack. These two inquiries correspond to the two main parts of the text. The second part also contains a discussion and criticism of the role which theistic concepts play in the regulative idea of the unity of the laws of nature, as discussed in the "Appendix" to the "Dialectic".
