Streszczenie I am mainly interested in this kind of useful philosophizing which concerns technological everyday routine or, in other words, omnipresence of new media. I assume, just like W. Barnett Pearce - a coauthor of CMM theory (Coordinated Management of Meaning) did, that the processes of contemporary communication can be treated as the way of being man. Taking into account the latest phenomena from the field of “the Internet Galaxy” such as infoactivism, infofreedom, multitasking and disintegration of a person, I update and continue some threads of this Action Theory. At the same time I emphasize basic content and problems of practical philosophy, which is more and more often referred to as media philosophy. In my dissertation both content and problems connected with the phenomenon are mainly considered in the perspective of anthropology of communication and social epistemology but other scientific margins of contemporary media philosophy are also taken into account.
