PHIL 315 - Technology and Human Values (3 credits)

(Prereq: Three (3) credit hours in PHIL, and Sophomore standing or higher; or permission of the instructor) Technology has come to play an increasingly dominant role in human life. This course analyzes modern technology from several perspectives, including: the ethical implications of employing information systems, the neutrality or non-neutrality of technology, the individual, social, and cultural impact of technology transfer, and the impact of technology upon the environment. The works of both critics and proponents of technology are explored.
