DESCRIPTION

An approachable introduction to the philosophical study of ethical dilemmas in technology

In the Technology Age, innovations in medical, communications, and weapons technologies have given rise to many new ethical questions: Are technologies always value-neutral tools? Are human values and human prejudices sometimes embedded in technologies? Should we merge with the technologies we use? Is it ethical to use autonomous weapons systems in warfare? What should a self-driving car do if it detects an unavoidable crash? Can robots have morally relevant properties?

This is Technology Ethics: An Introduction provides an accessible overview of the sub-field of philosophy that focuses on the ethical implications of new technologies. Requiring no previous background in the subject, this reader-friendly volume explores ethical questions concerning artificial intelligence, robots, self-driving cars, brain implants, social media and communication technologies, and more. Throughout the book, clear and engaging chapters describe and discuss key discussions, issues, and themes while inviting readers to develop their own perspectives on a wide range of moral and ethical questions.

  • Discusses how various technologies influence and shape individuals and society both positively and negatively
  • Illustrates how emerging technologies affect traditional ideas about ethics and human self-understanding
  • Addresses the ethical complications of creating technologies that may lead to morally problematic consequences
  • Considers if the benefits of new technologies outweigh potential drawbacks, such as how people interact online through social media
  • Explores how established moral and ethical theories relate to new questions concerning advanced technologies

Part of the popular This is Philosophy series published by Wiley-Blackwell, This is Technology Ethics: An Introduction is a must-read for undergraduate students taking a Technology Ethics course, researchers in the field, engineers, technology professionals, and general readers looking to learn more about the topic.
