1.3 Individual and Collective Responsibility

Course subject(s) 1. Responsible Innovation and Applied Ethics

In this lecture, you’ll learn how to distinguish between several different notions of individual moral responsibility and how to apply them in different concrete circumstances. ¬†Our illustrative case is that of a chemical plant operator and the question whether he or she might be responsible for different scenarios of accidents that occur at his or her plant.

As an engineer, innovator or designer, reflection about the various factors that affect responsibility should help design in a way that reduces the likelihood that something goes wrong without someone being morally responsible for it.
