About the Presentation

A new book on fairytales about digitalization serves as an example of how narration can shape our experiences of the world. Such narration can be overt and covert, depending on the sovereignty of its protagonists. The philosophers Bentham and Foucault point out how society can be interpreted as a panopticon, where narration is shaped through fear by use of surveillance. One connection to today´s events can be drawn, by looking at the chat control issue, put forth by the European Commission in 2021 and 2022.
