Ethical Issues in Science and Technology
Our website examines the negative, as well as the positive, effects of technology on society: not simply obviously destructive technologies such as weaponry, but also more subversive ones such as television, the Internet, automobiles, and so on. Modern consumerism, capitalism, militarism, and so on are thoroughly deconstructed and analyzed. It is our hope that this website will educate students who have as yet been blind to the evils that otherwise positive technologies can produce. A larger issue is at stake here as well: the issue of "progress". Is progress always a good thing? Society is geared towards constant change and progress (technology, of course, being a clear microcosm of this tendency) - perhaps it would be wise to step back for a few moments and examine other options. Essays, links, informational pages, and discussion boards form a major part of this site. We believe this topic forms the basis of a goal worthy of the TQ contest.
