In the modern era each new innovation poses its own special ethical dilemma. How can human society adapt to these new forms of expression, commerce, government, citizenship, and learning while holding onto its ethical and moral principles?
Ethical Impact of Technological Advancements and Applications in Society explores the ethical challenges of these innovations, providing cutting-edge analysis of designs, developments, impacts, policies, theories, and methodologies related to ethical aspects of technology in society. It advances scholarship on both in established areas such as computer ethics, engineering ethics, and biotech ethics as well as nascent areas of research such as nanoethics, artificial morality, and neuroethics.
