Nanoethics: Emerging Debates is a collection of twelve essays regarding the ethical implications of emerging nanotechnologies. The book is divided into four unites, which capture the four "hottest" topics in nanoethics: envisioning the future; nonomedicine; human enhancement; and privacy. The design of this book is to engender debates on these topics rather than merely to present unrelated articles. On each of these topics, there will be three papers. In most cases, there is one paper that "sets the stage" for the debate by talking about the status of the sciences and the effects that those sciences will have on society, and then this paper is followed by two articles which take contrary positions on the moral significance of those developments.
