Reviews

“Sandler’s book Ethics and Emerging Technologies offers an overview of the topic and gathers contributions from philosophers, ethicists, and policy scholars in an attempt to help students develop linguistic, conceptual, critical, and perspectival resources which will enable them to think carefully about the ethics of new technologies. … For those who have been focusing on nanoethics, this book is thus a suitable starting point for an exploration or comparison of key ethical issues relating to different types of technology domains.” (Laura Yenisa Cabrera Trujillo, Nanoethics, Vol. 9, 2015)
