CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: PhilTech - Philosophy & Technology Seminar Series, Oxford, UK

http://www.oii.ox.ac.uk/events/series/philtech/


Technologies have profoundly shaped the human experience, and continue to do so at an increasing 
pace, and with ever-expanding scope and impact. They are radically modifying not only how we 
interact with our environments, shape them, and make sense of them, but also how we understand 
ourselves and our position and responsibilities in the world. Technologies have brought enormous 
benefits and opportunities, but they also raise new and pressing challenges, whose complexity and 
global dimensions are rapidly evolving. There is much need for better understanding and new ideas.

PhilTech is the annual, multidisciplinary seminar series that brings prominent and influential 
speakers to the Oxford Internet Institute in order to advance critical understanding of the 
conceptual nature and practical consequences of technologies, and to provide new ideas about 
their fruitful and sustainable developments.

PhilTech is organised by Luciano Floridi and James Williams, with the support of the Oxford 
Internet Institute, in collaboration with the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Oxford, and 
with a sponsorship from the journal Philosophy & Technology.

Join us for lunch and talks at the OII.
