Forms of technology are increasingly integrated into our lives, and this development is leading to new and challenging ethical issues. This course will familiarize students with philosophical debates surrounding the nature of technology itself and the ethical consequences of technological developments. Topics to be explored in the course will be both historical and future-oriented, including ethical issues relating to biotechnology, computing, technological inequality, autonomous vehicles, artificial intelligence, and other emerging technologies. No prior knowledge of technology or ethics is required.
