Responsible Management of Information Systems

Buy

This book discusses the question of how information systems can be used and managed in a responsible manner. Normative problems such as intellectual property, privacy, power distribution, etc., are at the heart of many of the problems faced by users and managers of information systems. Responsible Management of Information Systems offers a novel approach to addressing these problems. This book takes these problems seriously but avoids the pitfall of ethical simplicity as expressed by some of the current approaches to computer or information ethics.

The main theme of Responsible Management of Information Systems is that of responsibility. The book describes the common sense notion of responsibility as well as its weaknesses. From the general description of responsibility the book progresses to a theoretically well-founded and practically applicable theory of reflective responsibility.
