AbstractInvestigating the impact of the Internet from multiple philosophical perspectives, this book explore issues the Internet poses for our sense of privacy, sensitivity to wrongdoing, and our cultural and personal identity. Essays in this volume look at issues of intellectual property, trust, student cheating, pornography, and human agency, as well as the impact the internet has had -both positively and negatively- on our ability to flourish as human beings.
