Introduction: a multifocal view of human agency in the era of autonomic computing

ByMIREILLE HILDEBRANDT

The objectives of this volume are threefold. First, it aims to investigate how different strands of the philosophy of technology can provide novel insights for the philosophy of law in an era of rapid technological change. Second, it seeks to explore how different approaches to philosophy of law can help philosophy of technology to come to terms with the normative impacts of technological devices and infrastructures. Third, we hope to provide a variety of perspectives on how autonomic computing impacts human agency, looking into the hybridization of humans and non-human artefacts and the sustainability of the notion of the liberal subject that informs mainstream philosophy of law.
