The perception of social space and time in both local and global level, is a result of a process that is produced by the peculiarity of the new technological culture. he aim of this paper is to discuss the intersection of science, knowledge, informatics and technocratic specialization with power. This study makes an attempt to face a “cultural-moralistic” force, which formulates personal and social political and economic values, formatting accordingly the behavior of social members as persons but also as citizens, towards social life, life itself.
