The third edition of Computer Ethics, by Deborah G. Johnson retains the clear writing and general approach of the widely adopted and respected previous editions. Each chapter begins with a short scenario to introduce the topic and make the issue concrete, followed by a lucid analysis of the issue. Each chapter concludes with study questions and suggested further readings.

Author Deborah G. Johnson has updated material throughout this text. Two new chapters on the Internet have been added: one focuses on ethical behavior online, and the other addresses the social implications of the Internet.

Topics covered include:

  • What are the philosophical foundations of computer ethics?
  • How does computer ethics relate to professional ethics?
