Overview

In this collection of essays, leaders in the emerging field of information ethics (Daniel Dennett, Senator Patrick Leahy, Kirkpatrick Sale, ACLU president Nadine Strossen, and 15 others) discuss the challenges associated with advances in technology. The essays are divided into five subject areas: freedom if information and the pursuit of knowledge; information, technology and education; information, rights and social justice; ethics and the Internet; and professional ethics. The writers come from many backgrounds (e.g., libraries, law, and academy) and provide a variety of views on the value of information and its ethical dimension in an increasingly technological age. The essays have been drawn from many periodicals, including Library Journal, Daedalus, The Nation, Journal of Information Ethics and Wired.
