Digital labor already plays an important role in the development of modern society and it is related with the liberation of human being. There are two distinct arguments: one is that digital labor is the hope of liberation of human labor and bring another chance like a New Renaissance; another is that it is still an alienated form of labor. This article focuses on studying digital labor by dialectics through philosophy reflection.
