From the forefront of news today to your textbook, SOCIETY, ETHICS, AND TECHNOLOGY, Fourth Edition, stresses the latest technological innovations and how these advancements represent new ethical challenges and dilemmas for society as a whole. You gain a strong foundation in theory and applied ethics as you discover how to examine critically the social effects of technology surrounding your daily life. This timely anthology, filled with the latest readings from prominent scholars and leaders, focuses on the most current technology issues and ethical debates. Useful introductions before each selection and Focus Questions help you understand readings within context. Readings, drawn from a variety of contemporary social issues, closely examine technological change and its social consequences from a variety of historical, societal, and philosophical perspectives. The book also delves into what the future holds in areas such as human rights, information technology, biotechnology, energy, and the environment. In addition to highlighting ethical theory, readings help you establish a solid decision-making framework. Detailed coverage examines the impact of specific, recent technological advances, such as artificial intelligence and surveillance, while special historical highlights technology particularly in medieval times and the twentieth century.
