On the creative role of ideology in shaping societies
The essay is an attempt to provide a definition of ideology that, departing from the Marxian one, goes past it and embodies complex systems of ideas that physically act in changing the material world by influencing human actions on an individual level and, through a number of shared rituals and codes defined - among others - by Sigmund Freud and René Girard, on the collective network.

Killing the Apocalypse through Kindness
Performative Power Point Presentation
Do androids dream of electric sheep? Will the future bring empathy towards AI? Is it possible to avoid a dystopian future where angry androids kill us all claiming for equal - or at least fair - treatment between computer-driven beings and humans? Materially, robot and machine abuse already exist, and no one among the upper academia says that a robot-caused apocalypse is entirely impossible, it is philosophically important to start a discussion around questions of such nature.
