Computer Ethics: A Case-Based Approach

Computer Ethics: A Case-Based Approach Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Computer Ethics: A Case-based Approach teaches students to solve ethical dilemmas in the field of computing, taking a philosophical, rather than a legal, approach to the topic. It first examines the principles of Idealism, Realism, Pragmatism, Existentialism, and Philosophical Analysis, explaining how each of them might be adopted as a basis for solving computing dilemmas. The book then presents a worksheet of key questions to be used in solving dilemmas. Twenty-nine cases, drawn from the real-life experiences of computer professionals, are included in the book as a means to let students experiment with solving ethical dilemmas and identify the philosophical underpinnings of the solutions.

Book News Annotation:

Barger (U. of Notre Dame) presents an introduction to the field of computer ethics. He first deals with the philosophy of ethics and explores efforts to construct a unifying theory of computer ethics. He also addresses psychological factors affecting computer ethics, whether there can be a professional ethics of computing, computer ethics and international development, and ethics and robotics. For most of the remaining chapters, each topical discussion is followed by a review of related cases encountered by computer professionals. These chapters discuss computer theft and piracy, the issue of privacy, computers and power, and miscellaneous topics. A final chapter addresses the topic of parasitic distributed computing.
