In Pursuit of Nanoethics
Transatlantic Reflections on Nanotechnology1409Skickas inom 10-15 vardagar.
Fri frakt inom Sverige för privatpersoner.The volume contributes to the ongoing nanoethics debate in four topical areas. The first part tackles questions of what could be called 'meta-nanoethics'. Its focus lies on basic concepts and the issue of what - if anything - is truly novel and special about the new field of nanoethics or its subject matter. The second part of this volume presents a selection of interesting perspectives on some of the opportunities and challenges of nanotechnology. Part three takes a more in depth look at one of the most pressing current concerns: how to deal with the risks and uncertainties surrounding nanotechnology in a responsible manner. In its fourth and final part the volume touches on issues of public debate and policy.

From the book reviews: "In Pursuit of Nanoethics is a welcome contribution to the field. I found myself recommending many of the selections to colleagues working in various areas of applied ethics and have gone back to many of the pieces to inform my own future research directions. From the novice student to the experienced scholar, this volume has something to offer for everyone, especially for those interested in integrating publics into the discourse around nanoethics." (Stephanie E. Vasko, NanoEthics, Vol. 8, 2014)
