CAIRO BOOKS's Description
The rapid advancement of information technology in modern societies affects
the way we live, communicate, work, and entertain. Computers and computer
networks formulate an information age in which traditional ethical questions
are reexamined and new questions arise concerning moral standards for human
behavior. Computer Ethics: A Global Perspective presents a clear and concise
introduction to the ethical and social issues sparked by our ever-growing
information society at the local and global level. Designed for use as a main
text in undergraduate and graduate courses that focus on computer, business,
and applied ethics, the text is also ideal for the Information Technology in a
Global Society course for the International Baccalaureate diploma. The text
considers the impact of digitized information on individuals and societies and
includes discussions on privacy, reliability, security, intellectual property,
control, equality of access, and authenticity, with insights from the
scientists and philosophers who have attempted to evaluate, explain, and
resolve these issues. The text also discusses the social impact of information
technology in different areas of human life such as business, health,
education, entertainment and politics.
