The Ethics of Information

Luciano Floridi

Oxford University Press

Previously, in Chapters 1 to 15, I outlined the nature and scope of information ethics. My goal in this chapter is not to convince the reader that no reasonable disagreement is possible about the value of IE as a specific approach to computer ethics or, more generally, as a macroethics. On the contrary, several of the theses defended in this book might be interesting precisely because they are also open to discussion. Rather, my goal is to remove some ambiguities, possible confusions, and mistaken objections that might prevent the correct evaluation of IE in its various interpretations, so that disagreement can become more constructive.

Keywords:   reductionism, supererogatory relativism, hypermoralism, egalitarianism, naturalistic fallacy, conservationism, pantheism, panpsychism
