Science Fiction, Ethics and the Human Condition By Christian Baron, Peter Nicolai Halvorsen, Christine Cornea
English | PDF | 2017 | 244 Pages | ISBN : 3319565753 | 3.2 MB
This book explores what science fiction can tell us about the human condition in a technological world, with the ethical dilemmas and consequences that this entails. This book is the result of the joint efforts of scholars and scientists from various disciplines. This interdisciplinary approach sets an example for those who, like us, have been busy assessing the ways in which fictional attempts to fathom the possibilities of science and technology speak to central concerns about what it means to be human in a contemporary world of technology and which ethical dilemmas it brings along.
