The Burning IssueIntimacy and extimacy

Amparo Lasén and José Luis Pardo interviewed by Antonio San José and Íñigo Alfonso

The right to intimacy is a common request that modern laws reflect, yet today there are still large gaps in the regulation of the protection of personal information on the Internet. The present use of the web is concentrated in the hands of a few transnational companies, for whom the use of our digital information poses a great business opportunity.

In times of social media, hyper-connectivity and political control through the Internet, the compelling need to construct a digital identity is proportional to the recognition that is sought in an increasingly virtualised job market and social domains. Thus, those who see digital spaces as mere places for self-glorification, sometimes do not consider that digital intimacy is also expressed with the intention of generating an individual’s credibility and confidence with respect to others.

Which social changes have led to a new perception of intimacy? To what extent are we prepared to share our intimacy? Do we confuse intimacy with privacy? Is extimacy a new form of intimacy? Amparo Lasén, Tenured Lecturer in Sociology at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, and José Luis Pardo, Professor of Philosophy at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, will respond to these and other questions.

A debate format in which, once a month, on a Monday at 7:30 pm, leading experts analyse important issues that make up today’s social reality with the journalists Antonio San José and Íñigo Alfonso.
