Socratic Club discussion on Searching for the Self

The Department of Philosophy Socratic Club Discussion

Google searching for the self: Living in the age of Data Analytics

Does data tracking allow strangers to know us better than we know ourselves?

How do we live as a changing self when our digital footprint is always following us?

Do we like our digital avatars better than ourselves?
