Inhalte der LV

This research seminar is focused on the philosophy of values, value based computer system design and digital ethics at large. It is consists of three parts. The first part of the course requires participants to read Nikolai Hartmann's "Ethics", which will be jointly discussed during class. Secondly, the philosophy of values presented in Hartmann's "Ethics" will be applied to value based design of computer systems. It will be challenged and compared to alternative approaches to ethics as embraced by contemporary IS scholars. Thirdly, this seminar gives students the additional opportunity to present their research work in the field of digital ethics and to get feedback on their method and arguments.
