Summary

Focusing on ethical and social implications of computer technology, this is a book about computing and human values that deals with pressing ethical issues arising from the development and deployment of computers in society. Its selections represent a wide diversity of opinions and perspectives, and offer a balance between theoretical analysis, and description of real-life cases. It's scope and purpose is to raise interest in and awareness of the issues, and will encourage readers to think about how the power of computer technology may be harnessed to benefit and not to harm, and to raise the quality of life of all members of our society.

Features

  • All major themes are grounded in real-life cases; text contains a number of vivid descriptions of actual cases in which computer technology presented difficult social and ethical challenges.
  • Selections represent a diverse array of opinions, encompassing a variety of disciplinary fields including philosophy, law, sociology, technical, and public policy.
  • Organized to be used as the primary basis of courses in Computer Ethics, Computing and Society, and Information Technology and Public Policy. This text is sufficiently comprehensive that it will enable those whose primary area of expertise is not in the area of computer ethics to design and teach a course.
  • Includes deep and rigorous analyses of major issues. To complement the practical accounts of concrete cases, we have selected related pieces from the philosophical, legal, technical, and sociological literatures that deal with and clarify many of the underlying concepts.
  • Provides a special focus on ethical and value implications. Various other texts on social implications of computing are more descriptive, and focus primarily on the ways the technology might shape society. Our text includes a major component that focuses on the ethical or normative consideration of key issues.
  • A lucid and accessible text even for non-experts. We carefully selected readings so that they would be accessible to a wide audience, knowing that courses in computer ethics could draw students in computer science, engineering, philosophy, public policy, sociology, and business management. We also wanted the book to be useful for various levels of college students, from freshmen through graduate students.
