First results of the EDELWEISS experiment

Abstract : The ethical question about the information technologies We refer here to Aristotle's definition of ethics to illuminate some practices generated by information technology. For example, the accumulation of documents (temptation to “possess” resources ), the problem of incorporating user – generated information within the project phases (problem of integrating alternative approaches), the assertion about the absolute freedom to make use of the ideas accessible on the web (the individual's interest takes precedence over laws of property); the decisive significance imputed to knowledge as opposed to imagination or affectivity. The denial of the corporeal in the world of the intellect is a philosophical point of view with its roots deep in gnosticism.
