A one day workshop to generate additional hypothesis
Thursday, 19th November, 2015 (10.00 – 16.00) : A one day workshop to generate additional hypothesis
Participants: members of the team
List with additional hypothesis:
i1. If we can argue that moral intuitions are not reducible to emotions, then we can talk about a certain concept of moral intuition with cognitive content.
i2. Bio-moral enhancement assumes an enhancement of cognitive moral and non-moral functions which indirectly influences moral behavior and moral judgment.
i3. Digital “piracy” is a solution to a problem of cooperation guided by the moral intuitions regarding the nature of digital objects, the nature of creativity and the property of ideal objects in the context of the limits of intellectual property.
i4. If it is possible to have a concept of an artificial moral agent, then it will be determined by our intuitions regarding the nature of our human moral anatomy.
i5. We cannot entirely eliminate the role of moral intuitions in the process of the social acceptance of different technologies.
i6. If moral intuitions pass the rational reflection test and the test of balancing them with theoretical principles, then they could be considered functional in the ethical evaluation of new and emergent technologies.
i7. Moral intuitions, which are strongly related to the evolutionist context where they emerged, cannot be the ultimate evaluation moral standards in the case of new and emerging technologies.
i8. Empirical data have indirect normative implications in the ethical evaluation of informational technologies, moral enhancement and robots.
i9. Indirect normative implications, observed in empirical data, can be in conflict with our moral intuitions which are strongly related to an evolutionist context.
