What Is Nanotechnology And Why Does It Matter? From Science To Ethics

Francis Allhoff, Patrick Lin, Daniel Moore

    Research output: Book/ReportBook

    Abstract

    Ongoing research in nanotechnology promises both innovations and risks, potentially and profoundly changing the world. This book helps to promote a balanced understanding of this important emerging technology, offering an informed and impartial look at the technology, its science, and its social impact and ethics.Nanotechnology is crucial for the next generation of industries, financial markets, research labs, and our everyday lives; this book provides an informed and balanced look at nanotechnology and its social impactOffers a comprehensive background discussion on nanotechnology itself, including its history, its science, and its tools, creating a clear understanding of the technology needed to evaluate ethics and social issuesAuthored by a nanoscientist and philosophers, offers an accurate and accessible look at the science while providing an ideal text for ethics and philosophy coursesExplores the most immediate and urgent areas of social impact of nanotechnology
