Media Freedom And Regulation In The New Media World. In 2013 the Media Studies Research Group established by the Hungarian Academy of Sciences launched a research programme entitled “The fundamentals of European thought on media law, with special respect to certain issues related to the freedom of speech”. The programme’s aim is to define the fundamentals of European thought on media law, to identify the possible models for the resolution of the various questions that arise, to understand the “common minimum” of European regulations that is present in all countries and to establish whether “best practices” exist in these areas and, if so, what they are. The Academy invited distinguished scholars from many countries working in the field of media and free speech law to take part in the research programme and send manuscripts for a collection of essays published in this book as a first step to promote the research at an international level. The essays of the book encompass a significant part of the current issues of the freedom of speech and media law. Apart from the fundamentals of media regulation the main subjects discussed are the regulation of the new media, the desirable limitations of the operation of the press, the regulation of public service media, the scope of the jurisdiction of the European Union in issues of media freedom, the law of libel, protection of privacy, hate speech and terrorism, commercial communications and political advertising. The objective of the editor was to ensure that this collection of papers contributes to the debates conducted in Europe, America, and other continents on the most important issues related to media law and the freedom of speech. The essays’ significant theoretical foundations and in-depth analyses will ensure that they remain important sources for a long time.

When Memories Nudge You Softly. “As we grow older, we all wander back in time. The time of our youth, where the peak of our powers knew no limits. We could see beyond the horizon. Mountains to climb presented no obstacles. We could outstrip the majesty of an eagle in flight. Is there a better way to celebrate the joy of your life than by reliving our memories, dreaming our dreams? Knowing that by sharing, you can love your way through anything.”

Malice. Despite our tendencies to separate the mind and body, good and evil, Flahault argues that both stem from the same source within us. This knot, inherent to the human condition, is the tension between our desire for absolute self-affirmation and the fact that each of us can only exist through mediation by others. The dependence on others weighs heavy on our shoulders, hampering our very existence. Malice, then, is not merely a result of our biological constitution, but is also a response to our feelings. These can often resemble those of Milton's and Shelley's monsters, stories the author calls upon to understand features of the nature of evil that reason alone cannot grasp. From the Preface: 'By combining several disciplines—philosophy, anthropology and literary criticism, as well as psychoanalysis—Flahault scrutinizes the origin of malevolence and reveals that, contrary to the view presented by moral philosophy, it is within us that the roots of wickedness are to be found ... Taking issue with the widely accepted view that monotheism constitutes moral progress, he argues that by instigating a dualism between good and evil, monotheism has in fact foreclosed the possibility of acknowledging the ambivalence of our fascination with the limitless and infinity.'
