Ethics is not enough! How to React to Digital Transformation

Prof. Till Dembeck

Belval, Maison des Sciences Humaines, Black Box

From 18.00 to 20.00

Lecture held in English


Media have a resounding effect on social relations. For example, the emergence of modern society resulted from the invention of the printing press. Today, many anticipate that ‘digitalisation’ will have similarly far-reaching effects, and this often leads to ethical reactions: ethics is to align digital technology with ‘human’ values. This reaction, however self-evident it may seem, must be questioned: not only is the ‘ethification’ of digital technologies a comparably weak reaction, worse, it impedes a clear-sighted assessment of the societal revolution underway. This lecture aims at offering a more sober, though potentially ‘unethical,’ look at the affordances of digital media.
