Course Description: This course focuses on technological developments in various fields of application. The course discusses these technological developments in terms of their ethical legitimacy and uses them to reflect on interesting philosophical concepts from fields of moral psychology and anthropology. The course explores questions such as: Does AI influence our view on technology and humanity? What impact does datafication have on our social networks and autonomous self? What should we think of persuasive technologies (like nudging)? How do our views on the self, others, and technology change our views on democracy as well? Students gain insight into ethical debates in the context of research and technology and apply philosophical concepts in normal theories, moral psychology, and anthropology. Students reflect on the notion of responsible innovation and develop an independent position on ethics and technology.
