Special Issue
Digital Humanity – Ethical Analyses and Responses in an Age of Transformation

What are the principal challenges posed to the field of ethics in light of digitalization? Given the profound individual, social, political, economic, technological and scientific transformations taking place, how should philosophical and theological ethicists effectively respond? How should responsibility, privacy, and human and non-human agency be defined in the digital age? To what degree are normative approaches to philosophical and theological ethics being engaged, applied or revised in light of digitalization? How should we define “the good life” in the digital age? Are human terms and the concept of emotion applicable to machines? What ethical and legal concepts are at stake and what interests are present in the intersection of humans and machines in the digital age?

We encourage contributions from the fields of philosophy, theology, and applied ethics, as well as political and social sciences, psychology, history, law, technology studies, computer science, and robotics.
