Morality in a Technological World

Magnani Lorenzo,Università degli Studi di Pavia, Italy

Knowledge as Duty

Hardback (ISBN-13: 9780521877695)

The technological advances of contemporary society have outpaced our moral understanding of the problems that they create. How will we deal with profound ecological changes, human cloning, hybrid people, and eroding cyberprivacy, just to name a few issues? In this book, Lorenzo Magnani argues that existing moral constructs often can not be applied to new technology. He proposes an entirely new ethical approach, one that blends epistemology with cognitive science.
