Ethics and Technology Summary


Ethics and Technology: Ethical Issues in an Age of Information and Communication Technology by H. Tavani

'Herman Tavani has written an excellent introduction to the field of cyberethics...We need a good book in cyberethics to deal with the present and prepare us for an uncertain future. Tavani's "Ethics and Technology" is such a book' - from the foreword by James Moor, Dartmouth College. Is there privacy in a world of camera phones and wireless networking? Does technology threaten your civil liberties? How will bioinformatics and nanotechnology affect us? Should you worry about equity and access in a globalized economy? From privacy and security to free speech and intellectual property to globalization and outsourcing, the issues and controversies of the information age are serious, complex, and pervasive. In this new edition of his groundbreaking book, Herman Tavani introduces computer professionals to the emerging field of Cyberethics, the interdisciplinary field of study that addresses these new ethical issues from all perspectives: technical, social, and philosophical. Using fascinating real-world examples - including the latest court decisions in such cases as Verizon v. RIAA, MGM v. Grokster, Google versus the Bush Administration, and the Children's Online Pornography Act (CIPA) - as well as hypothetical scenarios, he shows you how to understand and analyze the practical, moral, and legal issues that impact your work and your life. Tavani discusses such cutting-edge areas as: globalization and outsourcing; property rights and open source software HIPAA (privacy laws) and surveillance; the Patriot Act and civil liberties; bioinformatics and genomics research; converging technologies - pervasive computing and nanocomputing; and, children's online pornography laws. Updating and expanding upon the previous edition, "Ethics and Technology, Second Edition" provides a much-needed ethical compass to help computer and non-computer professionals alike navigate the challenging waters of cyberspace. About the Author: Herman T. Tavani is Professor of Philosophy at Rivier College and Co-Director of the International Society for Ethics and Information Technology (INSEIT). He is the author, editor, or co-editor of five books on ethical aspects of information technology.
