Exemplars of technomoral virtues

Inspired by Shannon Vallor’s book “Technology and virtues: A philosophical guide to a future worth wanting“, I am writing a series of short portraits of people who can be viewed as exemplars of the technomoral virtues that she discusses (2016, p. 110):


“The challenge we face today is not a moral dilemma; it is rather a moral imperative, long overdue in recognition, to collectively cultivate the technomoral virtues needed to confront [diverse and urgent] emerging technosocial challenges wisely and well.” (Shannon Vallor, 2016, p. 244).

My goal is to inspire researchers, scientists, engineers, developers and designers to cultivate these virtues, in themselves and in their work. Only then can people use these technologies in ways that support them in cultivating the very same virtues.
