For the last months I’ve been reading a lot about the research on values in change. What I’ve been looking for was a concept for the reasons for the change of values – but there is hardly anything. Most scholars point to the fact, that there are various reasons for the changes and that one cannot pinn them down.
For my PhD I wanted to point out that digital transcultural communication via Web 2.0 would lead to a change of values – in other words: One reason for changing values must be communication (speeded up by Web 2.0). Due to the fact that there is no answer to the quesiton of reasons for changing values I won’t be able to follow this path anymore. I will leave the debate of values in change aside and concentrate on the debates of universal human rights and the communication revolution triggered by the Internet.
