Abstract

This paper explores the impact that the digital world has on the daily lives of human beings, seeking to identify ways to promote the ability to live wisely, think deeply and love generously (cf. Laudato Si', 47). It starts from an epistemological reflection that allows us to approach this subject from a theological perspective, seeing to what extent religious discourse can contribute to a sustainable ecology. The answer to this challenge is made possible by the symbolic approach of the digital mediasphere, reflected on the thought of Marshal McLuhan and Roland Barthes, where the "medium" and the "myth" are seen as the support of communication.
