Digitalisierung: Neue Technik – neue Ethik
Interdisziplinäre Auseinandersetzung mit den Folgen der digitalen TransformationFEST Forschung
New Technologies - new Ethics? The volume, produced in interdisciplinary research at FEST, discusses what is "new" in and through digital technologies in different fields of science and society: What is truly new? Do novel objects, tools, forms of perception, means of cognition, questions, actors, and/or forms of communication emerge? Is something "new" recognizable or do existing questions continue in other medial forms?
The contributions are linked to one another by lines of arguments and fields, which - similar to hashtags - weave together individual statements into threads and thus enable mapping the debate around different concepts or phenomena. Throughout the volume, one can follow these threads:
- #predictability #surveillance #control #freedom #democracy
- #media change #perception #hermeneutics
- #anthropology #ethics #theology
This volume contributes to the necessary debate about the ethical shaping of the digital transformation and wants to stimulate further reflection, research, and discussion about new technologies and new ethics in the context of digitalization.
