Editorial Reviews

Review

With such a disruptive technology, it's hardly surprising that ethical questions arise, and they are engagingly discussed in [Nanoethics].
(Claire O'Connell, Irish Times)

Investigating eye-opening topics such as that of a 'post-human future' and 'nanobots', this is a fascinating study of our progresssion towards a dystopian society.
(Sunday Business Post)

Well written and combatively argued, this is a powerful succinct turn that also contains an entertaining chapter on Michael Crichton's Prey
(Business & Finance (Ireland))

Title mention. December 2009
(Morning Star)

The underlying ethical approach of the book seems to be sound and is certainly one I warm to.
(Times Higher Education Supplement)

"Rather than just setting out what is naughty and nice about technology on a very tiny scale, O'Mathuna delves into some of the deeper values and beliefs underlying the fascination with technology generally and recently with nanotechnology. He begins by describing what nanotechnology is, what it does, and where it came from. Then he discusses ethics around it generally, preying on fear, precaution, global nanotech, nanomedicine, becoming better than healthy, making room for human dignity in the posthuman future, and revisiting Daedalus and Icarus."
-Eithne O'Leyne, BOOK NEWS, Inc.


"O'Mathuna (Dublin City Univ., Ireland) introduces readers to the developing field of nanotechnology and the ethical questions this research raises... Particularly noteworthy are the author's use of science fiction films and literature to frame the ethical questions he discusses, and his interest in the intersection of nanotechnology and issues surrounding global poverty and development. Summing up: Recommended" -Choice

An easily readable well researched book . the issues are well-presented and thought-provoking . Overall an excellent book; essential reading for scientists motivated to pursue some of the more futuristic claims of nanotechnology. (Nanotechnology Perceptions)

'Nanoethics can justifiably be describes as a well-written book for scientists, policy makers and ethicists interested in exploring the issue at greater depth.'
(Ethical Perspectives)

'O'Mathúna's accessible style enables people who are not necessarily involved with nanotechnology to gain some knowledge of the basics. It also allows scientists to learn more about how human nature could shape the outcomes of nanotechnology... this book is a meaningful contribution for both scientists and non-scientists.'
