Poiesis & Praxis
ISSN (printed): 1615-6609. ISSN (electronic): 1615-6617.
Awareness of the ambivalence of scientific and technological developments has grown considerably over the last few decades. This is due to the increasing speed of technological progress and the complexity of technology advances in biomedicine and the new options for action which have resulted from these. Additionally we are becoming conscious of the limits of growth and are discovering long-term global risks related to technological progress. Problems associated with scientific and technological advances and their consequences are accordingly - and to an increasing extent - the subject of political and public debate. Poiesis & Praxis is conceived as an inter-disciplinary forum for reflection and deliberation on the scientific and technological future of our civilisation. In detail the contributions collected within the journal will be devoted to: Research into the consequences of scientific technological and bio-medical progress and their relevance to society; Reflections on this type of study of consequences in the sense of technology assessment and ethics of science. This will include investigations from the point of view of ethics law theory of science as well as sociology and economics; Discussion of the methods ideas and processes of technology assessment and ethics of science; The determination of the relationship between technology assessment and ethics of science on the one hand and politics and society on the other. Poiesis & Praxis is a scientific peer-reviewed journal primarily aimed at interested parties from universities and non-university research establishments in the fields of philosophy natural and engineering sciences social and legal sciences as well as in the medical disciplines. In addition it addresses decision-makers in political institutions and in business and industry.
