Le spiritisme en ligne : La communication numérique avec l'au-delà

Abstract : The inner conversion with the dead has always existed, and would even be specific to human being. The web is a new frame to develop such conversation. This phenomenon can be situated in the crossing of two major practicies: on the one hand, the development of post mortem digital identities and in the other hand, the transfer of the spiritualism practicies to digital devices. In the aim to examine these two emerging forms of funeral rites on the internet, this paper proposes an analysis of the cultural lineage of “transcommunication” or digital spiritualism. The denial of death in the twentieth century gives rise to new forms of dialogue with the dead.
