Introduction: Intersecting Traditions in the Philosophy of Computing

Chapter
Part of the Philosophical Studies Series book series (PSSP, volume 128)

Abstract

This volume consists of selected papers from the 2015 joint international conference—the first-ever meeting of the Computer Ethics-Philosophical Enquiry conference series of the International Society for Ethics and Information Technology, and the International Association for Computing and Philosophy—held at the University of Delaware from June 22–25 of 2015. The organizing themes of the conference are well represented in the volume. They include theoretical topics at the intersection of computing and philosophy, including essays that explore current issues in epistemology, philosophy of mind, logic, and philosophy of science, and also normative topics on matters of ethical, social, economic, and political import. All of the essays provide views of their subject matter through the lens of computation.
