New publication: Handbook on the ethics of technology
Energy production, medical and military technology, neurotechnology, or space travel – ethical issues arise in many fields where rapid technological development is taking place. Is this right and good? In order to answer this question, we have to consider and assess opportunities and risks, dangers and safety, progress and responsibility. The reissue of the “Handbuch Technikethik” (Handbook on the ethics of technology), edited by Armin Grunwald, head of ITAS and Professor of Philosophy of Technology, and Rafaela Hillerbrand, deputy head of the Institute and Professor of Ethics of Technology and Philosophy of Science, can help with this.
In order to provide the readers with a comprehensive insight into the field of ethics of technology, the authors of the handbook define the most important terms and introduce the ethical-philosophical principles of the ethics of technology. There are also contributions on many relevant fields of technology, such as autonomous driving, big data, additive processes (3D printing), or military technology and robotics. (05.10.2021)
