Ethical Issues in Nanotechnology:
Chris MacDonald's Essays on Nanotech



Work In Progress:

Nanotech (of a kind) is here, right now. And nanotech -- of other, very exciting kinds -- is also years away.

As a result, ethics in this area needs to span the range from the mundane to the futuristic. My work in this area stretches from urgent, practical questions related to the regulation of novel technologies to more speculative consideration of distant possibilities.

What I've written so far:

Ideas I'm working on now:

  • Choosing Teams: A Proposal for Nanotech Ethics Across Ideologies

  • Research Ethics in Nanomedicine: The Transhuman Research Subject

  • Nanoassembler Ethics: The Big If

  • Closing the Loop: What Nanotech Can Teach Us About Ethics & Technology
