    Trust and Virtual Worlds: Contemporary Perspectives.Charles Ess & May Thorseth (eds.) - 2011 - Peter Lang.
    Trust is essential to human society and the good life. At the same time, citizens of developed countries spend more and more time in virtual environments. This collection asks how far virtual environments, especially those affiliated with -Web 2.0-, challenge and foster trust? <BR> The book's early chapters establish historical, linguistic, and philosophical foundations for key concepts of trust, embodiment, virtuality, and virtual worlds. Four philosophers then analyze how trust - historically interwoven with embodied co-presence - may be enhanced through (...)

    Kant and Information Ethics.Charles Ess & May Thorseth - 2008 - Ethics and Information Technology 10 (4):205-211.
    We begin with our reasons for seeking to bring Kant to bear on contemporary information and computing ethics (ICE). We highlight what each contributor to this special issue draws from Kant and then applies to contemporary matters in ICE. We conclude with a summary of what these chapters individually and collectively tell us about Kant’s continuing relevance to these contemporary matters – specifically, with regard to the issues of building trust online and regulating the Internet; how far discourse contributing to (...)

    Reflective Judgment and Enlarged Thinking Online.May Thorseth - 2008 - Ethics and Information Technology 10 (4):221-231.
    This paper deals with forms of communication aiming at a better informed public or publics. The main idea is that democratic societies are dependent on toleration of a plurality of publics, and simultaneously there is a need for communication between the different publics. The ethos underlying this assumption is that democracy requires a transcendence of subjective conditions in order for the public(s) to gain legitimacy and recognition of opinions. Validity of opinions presupposes a public aspect that is available through communication. (...)

    Neither Relativism nor Imperialism: Theories and Practices for a Global Information Ethics. [REVIEW]Charles Ess & May Thorseth - 2006 - Ethics and Information Technology 8 (3):91-95.
    We highlight the important lessons our contributors present in our collective project of fostering dialogues both between applied ethics and computer science and between cultures. These include: critical reflexivity; procedural (partly Habermasian) approaches to establishing such central norms as “emancipation”; the importance of local actors in using ICTs both for global management and in development projects – especially as these contribute the trust essential for the social context of use of new technologies; and pluralistic approaches that preserve local cultural differences (...)

    The Politics of Sustainability: Philosophical Perspectives.Dieter Birnbacher & May Thorseth (eds.) - 2015 - Routledge.
    Responsibility for future generations is easily postulated in the abstract but it is much more difficult to set it to work in the concrete. It requires some changes in individual and institutional attitudes that are in opposition to what has been called the "systems variables" of industrial society: individual freedom, consumerism, and equality. The Politics of Sustainability from Philosophical Perspectives seeks to examine the motivational and institutional obstacles standing in the way of a consistent politics of sustainability and to look (...)

    Finding balance in normative toolkits.Allen Alvarez, May Thorseth & Siri Granum Carson - 2014 - Etikk I Praksis - Nordic Journal of Applied Ethics 1:1-4.
    This issue provides readers the opportunity to broaden understanding of methods used in applied ethics. We hope you will be inspired to decide on which method, or a combination of different ones, to use towards achieving reflective balance that can enhance understanding of all considerations relevant to deciding what should be done. Like tools, methods are used because they are well suited to the task we seek to accomplish.

    Mobile/Ubiquitous Computing: Dreams and Nightmares.Charles Ess, Johnny Søraker & May Thorseth - 2010 - Etikk I Praksis - Nordic Journal of Applied Ethics 2 (2):3-9.
    Both the scholarly and certainly the popular literatures surrounding information and computing ethics make frequent reference to one or more revolutions. To be sure, in an age that has witnessed—and is increasingly driven by—rapid technological innovation and diffusion, it is tempting to believe that new technologies cannot help but to transform our lives and worlds in radical, dramatic, and thus revolutionary ways.

    Worldwide Deliberation and Public Use of Reason Online.May Thorseth - 2006 - Ethics and Information Technology 8 (4):243-252.
    The aim of this paper is threefold: (i) to trace the idea of deliberation back in the history of philosophy and establish the link to the Kantian concept of public reason; (ii) to pave the way for rhetoric as a constituent part of public deliberation; (iii) to undertake an applied ethical approach to worldwide deliberation online. The two former aims are treated in part one of the paper, whereas the applied analysis is undertaken in part two. One important task is (...)

    Value and Growth: Rethinking Basic Concepts in Lockean Liberalism.Jennifer Leigh Bailey & May Thorseth - 2017 - Etikk I Praksis - Nordic Journal of Applied Ethics 1:107-129.
    This article argues that protection of the environment requires reconsidering basic liberal ideas relating to value and growth. It selects a central thinker in the liberal tradition, John Locke, as a starting point. The article first shows how Locke’s political writings at first glance might support a “possessive individualist” position that gives primacy to individuals and their rights to property in a way that blocks governmental action to protect the environment, much as some modern versions of liberalism and libertarianism maintain. (...)

    Temanummer om «etikkbølgen» i yrkesutdanning og -praksis.Siri Granum Carson & May Thorseth - 2013 - Etikk I Praksis - Nordic Journal of Applied Ethics 2 (2):1-3.
    Temanummer om «etikkbølgen» i yrkesutdanning og -praksisHøstens utgave av Etikk i praksis er et temanummer om «etikkbølgen» innen yrkesutdanning og -praksis, altså tendensen til å gjøre etikk til et eksplisitt tema for fag, kurs, kodekser og retningslinjer innen ulike profesjoner og utdanningsløp. Den tematiske delen består av fire artikler som omhandler ulike yrkesgruppers møte med «etikkbølgen». I den åpne delen har vi to artikler: en som drøfter vårens store profesjonsetiske slag i norsk politikk, nemlig fastlegenes reservasjonsrett, og en som tar (...)

    Ethical Implications of Co-Benefits Rationale Within Climate Change Mitigation Strategy.Rita Vasconcellos Oliveira & May Thorseth - 2016 - Etikk I Praksis - Nordic Journal of Applied Ethics 2 (2):141-170.
    Climate change mitigation effort is being translated into several actions and discourses that make collateral benefits and their rationale increasingly relevant for sustainability, in such a way that they are now a constant part of the political agenda. Taking a border and consensual perspective, co-benefits are considered here to be emerging advantages of the implementation of measures regarding the lowering of greenhouse gases.Departing from the analysis of policy documents referring to two European urban transportation strategies, the emergent co-benefits are problematized (...)

    Introduction.Espen Dyrnes Stabell, May Thorseth, Allen Alvarez & Siri Granum Carson - 2014 - Etikk I Praksis - Nordic Journal of Applied Ethics 2:1-4.
    _Taking issue with sustainable governance involves careful consideration of social, economic, and environmental dimensions of sustainability, and the interplay of those dimensions in political processes and decision-making. The current issue of Etikk i Praksis contributes to this task by offering analysis of central concepts in the discourse of sustainability, as well as examinations of political and moral issues raised by pressing environmental challenges such as climate change._.

    Respect, Trust, Care and Interconnectedness.May Thorseth, Siri Granum Carson & Allen Alvarez - 2014 - Etikk I Praksis - Nordic Journal of Applied Ethics 1:1-2.
    This open themed issue of Etikk i praksis compiles five diverse papers that overlap at key conceptual intersections around trust, care and responsibilities across national boundaries. Our globalized social environments have become more and more complex, and the information needed to understand society and our moral responsibilities have grown ever more challenging. The ‘fake news’ buzzword, used by various societal actors to cast doubt on political rivals, is shaking the trust needed to be confident about institutional sources of information. The (...)
