Nano Technology - Ethic and Society


Nanotechnology promises to be the next great human technological revolution, but such change often comes at the price of unforeseen consequences. Nanotechnology: Ethics and Society explores several of the practical and ethical dilemmas presented by this technological leap. This book provides a framework for deciding how to best take advantage of nanotechnology opportunities while minimizing potential negative effects. After an overview of the nanotechnology revolution, this text illustrates key concepts in the assessment model and then applies this model to a case study related to human enhancement technologies. A final chapter offers an ethical agenda for addressing the challenges of nanotechnology.
