Ethics in Theory and Practice for Cognitive Science Students



This is one of the (new) intensive courses for the Bachelor program; if you are subject to the new examination regulation and would like to choose “Philosophy for Cognitive Science” for your “Wahlpflichtbereich”, you need to take (at least) one of them. The course is on an introductory level.

In the first part of the seminar, we will talk about basic and general philosophical approaches to ethics: Consequentialism/utilitarianism, deontological theories, virtue ethics, etc. In the second part, we will discuss more applied topics related to cognitive science: Data ethics, ethical problems concerning highly automated systems like “autonomous cars” or drones, “online friendship”, specific moral problems of Big Data, and the like.
