L'identité occasionnée sur Internet. Jeux catégoriels et profilage moral

Abstract : This article examines the succession of comments posted on a forum/message board hosted by Al-Arabiya, in reaction to a news release concerning incidents of a religious nature in Esna, Upper Egypt. It raises the question of identity, as both constitutive of this succession of comments and its main object. In this case, identity belongs to the constitutive elements of the virtual activity itself, and it is displayed to characterize others, to characterize oneself and to link rights and duties to these categorical acts. In this regard, it is part and parcel of the normative character of practical cognition, i.e., cognition as it is captured in action. The article describes the concrete forms of the ordering of people's conceptual, communicational, relational and instrumental behaviour, as it unfolds in situ on the forum/message board.
