Abstract

In the wake of unbridled competition, institutionalized through indiscriminate capitalism and glovalization, modern civilization, although it has brought us much to celebrate, has tightened up the in-trancic freedom of human beings. In this essay, we have reviewed problems and implications of the "reflexive modernity and information," shedding light on "human alienation" and "binding human consciousness." Were a visionary society dreamed in the upcoming century to be the one that opens the possibility to achieve individual freedom and creativity, it would boil down to the issue of "self-actualization" for the actors of society, the new principle should offer a hope to solve the probalem of "human alicnation" textured in an industrial society. This was a key theme examined in this essay. In this essay, we termed "reflexive" informatization for the informatization pointing to such direction. (The rest omitted)
