Noortje Marres

Philosopher and Researcher

Noortje Marres participated in the GovCom.org researchgroup and graduated on the subject 'Selections on the Web' in 2000.

In her thesis she posed the problem of the non-differentiated multiplicity of the Web.

Via Rorty and Landow, who lack power of discernment in her opinion and who embrace the pluralism typical of the web without questioning it, she arrived at Latour and Arendt, who, in her view indeed entertained a pluralism-tolerant vision that left room for the distinctions necessary.
