Robyn F. Brothers


Current debates surrounding liberalism and comminitarianism, modernity and postmodernity, ethical theory and narrative ethics fail to account for shifting foundations of personal identity in an increasingly computer-mediated era of human communication. This paper ais to examine some of the conceptual assumptions about identity and community which are being radically undermined by rapidly evolving information networks and are therefore in need of redefinition. The concept of co-authored fiction sites where exploration of personal identity will bear upon future ethical and political decision making.
