Information technology has produced new ethical challenges and concerns in dealing with issues about privacy, security, piracy and professional ethics. ""Contemporary Issues in Ethics and Information Technology"" discusses these issues as well as other important ethical issues such as the outsourcing of high-level jobs and the value of IT itself. The main framework for ethical problems used in ""Contemporary Issues in Ethics and Information Technology"" is derived from the work of the late philosopher John Rawls. Rawls' contribution to ethics was a theory of justice rooted in the social contract theory of the Declaration of Independence and the U. S. Constitution. The author's discussion of the value of IT also builds on the views of the philosopher, Martin Heidegger, on modern technology as an independent force in human existence with its own point-of-view. This book provides guidance for IT professionals and users for practical ethical problems.
