Autonomy and Creativity

The social and cultural movement that underlies cyberspace — a powerful and increasingly broad movement — is covering not toward any particular content but toward a form of communication that is unmediated, interactive, community based, nonhierarchical, and rhizomatic. Generalized interconnection, the hunger for virtual communities, the exaltation of collective intelligence — none of those constitute the elements of a political or cultural program in the classical sense of the term. Yet all three are secretly driven by two essential “values”: autonomy and an openness toward alterity.

— Pierre Levy “Cyberculture”

“autonomy and an openness toward alterity” = “人的自主和”?
