We live in a “digital” world, the separation between physical and virtual makes (almost) no sense anymore. Here, the Covid-19 pandemic has also acted as an accelerator/magnifier, demonstrating that the future of our digital society is here with all its possibilities, and also shortcomings. Digital Humanism provides a much-needed interdisciplinary answer to this situation. It is an approach that looks at this interplay of technology and humankind: it analyzes, and, most importantly, tries to influence the complex interplay of technology and humankind, with the goal of creating a better society and life.
