Description

Investigating the impact of the Internet from multiple philosophical perspectives, this book explores issues the Internet poses for our sense of privacy, sensitivity to wrongdoing, and our cultural and personal identity. The electronic culture that influences almost every aspect of our daily lives offers new ethical challenges and creates new areas for philosophical reflection on these challenges. Contributors explore topics such as copyright and intellectual property, trust, student cheating, pornography, human agency, and the positive and negative impact that the Internet has on our ability to flourish as human beings. These essays provide a fresh perspective and contribute to the ongoing conversation about the philosophical meaning of the Information Age.
