Nowadays our lives have introduced digital practices in daily activities. This change is also reproduced in professional settings, like the scientific one.
Research practices have been modified from this transformation, from communication with other researchers to the analysis of data. In every discipline, we observed the so-called “digital turn” or the digital transformation in scientific collaboration. The IoT is part of this transformation.
The main research question is the following: What are the key dimensions of digital transformation and the IoT in scientific collaboration? The objective is to explain the changes in design practices in the science assessment criteria and ways of sharing knowledge through new techniques and software arising from stabilization of new tools.
Our aim is to examine why trust can be considered a second-order emotion and how the way in which trust plays out differently in aesthetic and ordinary contexts can provide another mode of investigating second-order emotions. Our thesis is developed in three sections and a conclusion.
In the first section, we perform an example analysis to show why narratives are important for our emotions. In the second section, we examine how trust can be considered a second-order emotion and establish criteria for identifying it as a second-order emotion. In the third section, we present one of the aims of trust, i.e. sharing knowledge between agents, when a testimony-giver shares knowledge in an epistemic trust process with others. We show how the relationship construction between persons thanks to trust, a second-order emotion that represents emotional ties between agents to achieve a first-order emotion.
