Please choose and respond to one of the following questions:
This week we explored ways in which the traditional resources can be applied to problems raised by technological development. Pick two such resources (deontological views of obligation, consequentialist views, views of human nature, moral agency, etc…) and describe how our authors thought it “fell short” when applied to technological development.
Address the tension between a “new humility” and the desire to pursue utopian visions enabled by development. How should we respond to such visions? What moral values or virtues are being pursued?
Use at least two of this week's readings as resources in your initial post.
