This site is a collection of essays I’ve written, as well as essays by other philosophers, ethicists, and writers that I’ve featured, on ethical and philosophical issues in modern technology. It ran from 2009 to 2010.
The purpose of the site is to promote awareness, dialogue, and reflection about the ways in which technology is reshaping the human experience, and how these changes can be considered through a more meditative, philosophical and ethical framework. There are currently 22 articles, which you can view either by scrolling down or by clicking here to view the site index page.
Topics on the site include the ethics of cognitive enhancement, the implications of fMRI brain scans on our conceptions of free will, the ways in which the Internet is changing the way we read, ethical perspectives on Ray Kurzweil’s Singularity, and the changing face of ethics as a result of environment-shifting technologies, to name a few.
