The New Normal: Evaluating Social and Ethical Concerns in the Information Age

In our age of unparalleled technological advancement, it is important that we address the social and ethical considerations that these advances engender. Ethics for the Information Age seeks to do exactly that, proposing a thoughtful approach that considers not only the short-term benefits of a piece of technology, but what the possible long-term effects could be, as well. Such an approach requires a solid grounding in ethics and logic, an understanding of the history of technology, and a familiarity with current and cutting edge information technologies and their related issues.

The 8th Edition has been updated considerably, notably in the inclusion of a new appendix, Appendix B, which focuses on common logical fallacies and structuring local arguments, and material relating to a multitude of emergent information technology developments and controversies.

This title is also available digitally as a standalone Pearson eText. This option gives students affordable access to learning materials, so they come to class ready to succeed.

Author Biography

Michael J. Quinn earned a BS in mathematics from Gonzaga University and an MS in computer science from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He worked for two years as a software engineer at Tektronix, Inc., then returned to graduate school to complete a PhD in computer science from Washington State University. For a total of 24 years he was a computer science professor at the University of New Hampshire and Oregon State University. He did pioneering research in the field of parallel computing, and his textbooks on that subject have been used by hundreds of universities worldwide. In the early 2000s his focus shifted to computer ethics, and the result was Ethics for the Information Age. Since 2007 he has served as Dean of the College of Science and Engineering at Seattle University.
