Professor Floridi appointed Editor-in-Chief of Philosophy & Technology

Professor Luciano Floridi (Hertfordshire/Oxford) has been appointed as Editor-in-Chief of Philosophy & Technology, the new journal to be launched by Springer in 2011.
Technologies profoundly affect human life. They have brought enormous benefits and opportunities, but also raised new and pressing challenges, whose complexity and global dimensions are rapidly expanding and evolving. The journal will address such challenges, in order to improve our critical understanding of the conceptual nature and practical consequences of technologies, and therefore foster their fruitful and sustainable developments.
The journal will publish the best research produced in all areas where philosophy and technology meet, regardless of the tradition, school of thought or disciplinary background from which it derives. It will seek to obtain a broad impact, not only on academic research but also on social and political issues and on relevant policy-making activities.
