NEW CPD Perspectives, “‘Psychopower’ of Cultural Diplomacy in the Information Age”

Summer and Fall 2012 CPD Visiting Scholar Natalia Grincheva authors a piece that analyzes the role of digital diplomacy and situates it theoretically within the philosophical work of Bernard Stiegler.

This paper focuses on the phenomenon of digital diplomacy, critically analyzed from the perspective of philosophical psychoanalysis. The study aims to elaborate the theoretical underpinnings of digital diplomacy through employing the conceptual framework of collective individuation and psychotechnologies developed by French critical philosopher Bernard Stiegler. Stiegler’s philosophical conception of contemporary politics under the condition of globalized cultural and economic capitalism is employed in this work to explain the dramatic changes in diplomatic relations taking place on the international arena at the beginning of the new century.
