Abstract

Cyberspace is standing out there waiting for us to study it from a psychosocial perspective.

The authors in this work discuss the opportunity to found this point of view on a three pillars: a theory of subjects, a theory of objects and a theory of processes relevant to the features of artifacts and services actives in Cyberspace. The issues raised here constitute just the first essential step towards a definitive study of communication technology and the culture that has grown up around it: its goal is to open a conceptual and dialogical space to settle theoretical, methodological and operational standards to study cyber-interaction
