9780470084175: Nanoethics: The Ethical and Social Implications of Nanotechnology

Nanotechnology will eventually impact every area of our world

Nanoethics seeks to examine the potential risks and rewards of applications of nanotechnology. This up-to-date anthology gives the reader an introduction to and basic foundation in nanotechnology and nanoethics, and then delves into near-, mid-, and far-term issues. Comprehensive and authoritative, it:

  • Goes beyond the usual environmental, health, and safety (EHS) concerns to explore such topics as privacy, nanomedicine, human enhancement, global regulation, military, humanitarianism, education, artificial intelligence, space exploration, life extension, and more
  • Features contributions from forty preeminent experts from academia and industry worldwide, reflecting diverse perspectives
  • Includes seminal works that influence nanoethics today
  • Encourages an informed, proactive approach to nanoethics and advocates addressing new and emerging controversies before they impede progress or impact our welfare
This resource is designed to promote further investigations and a broad and balanced dialogue in nanoethics, dealing with critical issues that will affect the industry as well as society. While this will be a definitive reference for students, scientists in academia and industry, policymakers, and regulators, it's also a valuable resource for anyone who wants to understand the challenges, principles, and potential of nanotechnology.

Book Description John Wiley and Sons Ltd, 2007. Book Condition: New. New technology often creates novel situations for which no ethical policy exists or seems immediately obvious. In an area as broad as nanotechnology, there will be a range of possibilities for use and abuse. As a result, it is important to separate fact from fiction when considering how to formulate new and appropriate ethical policies. Num Pages: 416 pages, black & white illustrations.
