RRS '19 Talk
Practical Ethics for Designers 101
(with Morten Rand-Hendriksen)
The history of moral philosophy has many lessons for design. This talk outlines the three major philosophical movements grounding western ethics and illustrates each with activities designers currently practice. Finally, a fourth approach from economic theory is proposed as additional guidance for designers seeking ways to build good in the world.
