Ethics, Law and the Politics of Information: A Guide to the Philosophy of Luciano Floridi

Ethics, Law and the Politics of Information: A Guide to the Philosophy of Luciano Floridi By Massimo Durante
English | PDF | 2017 | 240 Pages | ISBN : 9402411488 | 2.65 MB

This book provides a detailed discussion of the theoretical and practical implications of the change driven by ICTs. Such a change is often much more profound than an emphasis on information technology and society can capture, for not only does it bring about ethical and policy vacuums that call for a new understanding of ethics, politics and law, but it also “re-ontologizes reality”, as propounded by Luciano Floridi’s philosophy and ethics of information. The informational turn is transforming our understanding of reality by challenging the conventional ways we have of thinking about our world and our identities in terms of stable and enduring structures and beliefs.
