PHI 2500: Science, Technology and Society
How has modern science and technology transformed the human condition and the modes in which humans engage creation/nature? This course examines what makes the sciences distinct as a way of knowing from other means to knowledge. It considers questions at the intersection of science and ethics and will look at the impact of technology on society and the pursuit of the good life. More pointedly, in what ways does modern technology undermine the good life and what challenging ethical questions are raised by the internet, artificial intelligence, and biotechnologies (e.g. genetic engineering or gene therapies/enhancements)? Offered alternate years.
