Imagining Techno-Moral Change: international conference @Maastricht University
In July, we organised a conference about imagining techno-moral change. It was well visisted, and hopefully some interesting papers will turn into a volume.
Rationale of the Centre for Ethics and Politics of Emerging Technologies:
“Technology is an important driver of change in today’s world, and the desirability of such change is a matter of concern in public debate and policy making. Whereas the influence of morality on technology is well acknowledged, the influence of technology on morality is much less considered. This conference aims to investigate the phenomenon of techno-moral change from a philosophical, historical and sociological perspective. Moreover, it explores how our capacity to imagine, and relate to, techno-moral change may be enhanced by the arts. Lastly, it will consider to what extent and how the phenomenon of techno-moral change should be taken into account in public debate on emerging technologies.”
