ETHICAL AND SECURITY ISSUES IN TECHNOLOGY USE

Course description

This course is designed to provide students with a framework for understanding ways in which human societies transform themselves through technological innovation and for assessing the social and ethical issues associated with technological change. New technologies extend human powers and enlarge social options, but also often give rise to unwanted social and environmental consequences and lead to troubling ethical problems. These general themes will be developed by means of lectures, associated course readings, classroom activities, and exercises in seminar sections during which students will explore past and present developments in various fields of technology and discuss the ethical and social issues they raise.
