In his talk, prof. Carbajo would assert the urgent need of discernment in our hyper-connected and hyper-accelerated society, which drives people to frenetic activity and constant hurry. Besides, “the speed with which information is communicated exceeds our capacity for reflection and judgement”. The first part of prof. Carbajo's talk would focus on discernment and would indicate some of its characteristics, paying special attention to the Franciscan perspective. The second part would focus on how to practice it in order to meet the ethical challenges of our digital culture.
