The ‘good life’ in intercultural information ethics: a new agenda

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articlepeer-review


Current research in Intercultural Information Ethics (IIE) is preoccupied, almost exclusively, by moral and political issues concerning
the right and the just (e.g., Hongladarom & Ess 2007; Ess 2008; Capurro 2008). These issues are undeniably important, and with the continuing development and diffusion of ICTs, we can only be sure more moral and political problems of similar kinds are going to emerge in the future. Yet, as important as those problems are, I want to argue that researchers' preoccupation with the right and the just are undesirable. I shall argue that IIE has thus far overlooked the issues pertaining to the good life (or, individual‘s well-being). IIE, I claim, should also take into account these issues. Hence, I want to propose a new agenda for IIE, i.e. the good life, in the current paper.
