Eric Berg publishes paper on ethics of technology
November 14, 2012
JACKSONVILLE, IL – Eric Berg, associate professor of philosophy and religion at MacMurray College has published a paper in the current issue of the Journal of Lutheran Ethics.
The essay, “Technology, Lutheranism, and the Proclamation,” argues that technology is neither good nor bad, it’s neutral, but the ethics are in how people use technology. He places the use in a Lutheran moral and theological context.
