Scientific discovery and technological innovation continue to proceed at an accelerating pace, bringing far-reaching benefits as well as ethical, societal and governmental concerns. Information technologies in particular have transformed society in recent years and major developments within other emerging technologies may prove to be equally as monumental. This series demonstrates the breadth of challenges and the difficult adjustments entailed in reaping the benefits of technological innovation while minimizing possible harms, and highlights that the pathways for technological progress are uncertain as new discoveries and convergences between areas of research afford novel, and often unanticipated, opportunities. The collection consists of eight volumes which focus on issues in: sports technologies and human enhancement; medical technologies; information technologies; biotechnology; nanotechnology, geoengineering and clean energy; military and security technologies; and ethics, law and governance. The volumes bring together key articles, all carefully selected by leading scholars in their respective fields, which play a significant role in ongoing debates as well as addressing the cutting-edge issues of futuristic challenges and additional technologies under development. This series provides a one-stop resource for lecturers in this field and an invaluable research tool for scholars, students and libraries.
