Description

As space satellites orbit the earth on a regular basis and scientists find more sophisticated ways to splice genes, we are all faced with the responsibility of reconciling the lengths to which technology must comply with morality. This book presents a variety of moral controversies of concern in this day and age of technological advancement. The contributors study a wide range of relevant topics such as: current technological development and the ethical inquiries it prompts; risk-cost benefit analysis and other assessment methods; freedom of information, national security, and university-corporate research agreements; national and international technology transfers; and technology policymaking typologies. The current controversies examined draw from information, gene-splicing, health care, space, energy, and materials technologies.show more
