Book launch: Italian Philosophy of Technology. Socio-Cultural, Legal, Scientific and Aesthetic Perspectives on Technology.



Book launch: Italian Philosophy of Technology. Socio-Cultural, Legal, Scientific and Aesthetic Perspectives on Technology.

Published by Springer with editors Simona Chiodo and Viola Schiaffonati (both from the Politecnico di Milano) and with Luciano Floridi (University of Oxford) and Maurizio Ferraris (Università degli Studi di Torino), authors of contributions to the book.

This is the first volume about the Italian philosophy of technology written in English and including novel and translated contributions. The volume presents original research on emerging topics in the field, as well as an overview of the most distinguished Italian approaches to the philosophy of technology. While offering both historical and political perspectives and the contributions of the philosophy of law, philosophy of science, and aesthetics, Italian Philosophy of Technology promotes a novel view on the intersection between continental and analytic traditions in the philosophy of technology.

Simona Chiodo teaches Aesthetics and Epistemology and coordinates the interdoctoral course of Epistemology of Scientific and Technical Research at Politecnico di Milano. She was Visiting Professor in Edinburgh, Visiting Scholar in Pittsburgh and spent research stays at Harvard. She is a member of the Research Ethical Committee of Politecnico di Milano. Her research focuses on Epistemology (relationship between aisthesis and episteme, epistemological dualism and relationship between reality and ideality) and Aesthetics (beauty and aesthetics of architecture).

Viola Schiaffonati teaches Computer Ethics and Philosophical Issues of Computer Science. She is a member of the Artificial Intelligence and Robotics Lab of Politecnico di Milano. She obtained a PhD in Philosophy of Science at the Università degli Studi di Genova and has been a Visiting scholar at University of California at Berkeley and a Visiting researcher at Stanford University. Her research interests include the philosophical issues of Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, and Computer Science and are focused, in particular, on the epistemology of experiments in autonomous robotics, on computer simulations, and on the ethical issues of intelligent systems.

Luciano Floridi is the OII’s Professor of Philosophy and Ethics of Information at the University of Oxford, where he is also the Director of the Digital Ethics Lab of the Oxford Internet Institute. Still in Oxford, he is Distinguished Research Fellow of the Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics of the Faculty of Philosophy, and Research Associate and Fellow in Information Policy of the Department of Computer Science. Outside Oxford, he is Faculty Fellow of the Alan Turing Institute (the national institute for data science) and Chair of its Data Ethics Group; and Adjunct Professor (“Distinguished Scholar in Residence”) of the Department of Economics, American University, Washington D.C.

His research concerns primarily Information and Computer Ethics (aka Digital Ethics), the Philosophy of Information, and the Philosophy of Technology. Other research interests include Epistemology, Philosophy of Logic, and the History and Philosophy of Scepticism. He has published over a 150 papers in these areas, in many anthologies and peer-reviewed journals. His works have been translated into many languages, including Arabic, Chinese, Dutch, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Lithuanian, Persian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish.

Maurizio Ferraris is a philosopher and scholar, whose name is associated especially with the philosophical current named "new realism" -- Ferraris wrote the Manifesto of New Realism in 2012, which was published by SUNY Press in 2014) -- which shares significant similarities with speculative realism and object oriented ontology.

A pupil of Gianni Vattimo, and influenced by Jacques Derrida, Ferraris began as a theorist of hermeneutics before turning his attention to analytic philosophy. Over the years he has been able to create an effective synthesis between the two approaches, creating a new ontological realism that rejects Kant's schematism in the domain of cognition.

Since 1995, Ferraris has been Professor of Philosophy in the Department of Literature and Philosophy at the University of Turin, where he also runs the LabOnt (Laboratory for Ontology). He studied in Turin, Paris and Heidelberg and has taught at major European Universities. He is the editor of the Rivista di Estetica and is a member of the editorial board of Critique and aut aut. From 1989 to 2010 Ferraris contributed regularly to the cultural supplement of the Italian newspaper Il Sole 24 ORE. Since 2010 he has been writing for the cultural section of La Repubblica. His main areas of expertise are hermeneutics, aesthetics and ontology.
