Nanoethics -- The watchdog of a new technology?
The field of nanotechnology is broad and has the potential to be used in a wide range of industries and fields, but the question is whether it is a good investment. Will it solve fundamental social problems that assure a better future?
In an article just published in the debut issue of the journal NanoEthics entitled, "Ethics and Technology ‘in the Making': An essay on the Challenge of Nanoethics," an expert discusses how nanoethicists can be among the actors who shape the meaning and materiality of an emerging technology. The first issue of NanoEthics is available online free of charge at springerlink.com.
