Rethinking Ethics - Reimagining Technology

With the theme of “Rethinking Ethics – Reimagining Technology”, this conference aims to address the question what philosophy and ethics of technology mean today. It accordingly seeks to bring together scholars working on philosophy and ethics of technology, whether this work concerns conceptual analysis, reflections on methods for studying and evaluating technology, case-studies in the ethics of (disruptive) technologies, sustainable technology, praxis-oriented approaches geared towards design and social implications, or topics related to these.

This conference will be jointly organized by the 4TU.Ethics and ESDiT


The 4TU.Center for Ethics and Technology is a collaboration between four technical Universities in The Netherlands: Delft University of Technology, Eindhoven University of Technology, Wageningen University & Research and University of Twente. It is a community of researchers that aims to stimulate and perform research in the field of ethics and technology, both fundamental and applied. 4TU.Ethics aims to address societal challenges in the context of a globalized and inter-connected world,  and to advance understanding of ethical issues in engineering and technology development. 

 

 


The overall aim of the ESDiT research programme is to develop a comprehensive philosophical understanding of the socially disruptive technologies (SDTs) of the 21st century, and in particular their challenge to the very concepts and values that we normally appeal to in our moral thinking. These concepts and values form the basis of our current moral, political, and anthropological order. There is an urgency to this aim, as we need to develop new moral frameworks to guide these technologies for the betterment of humanity.
