RESEARCH

Brey’s Ph.D. thesis focused on the cognitive turn in epistemology and the philosophy of science. Since then, his attention has shifted to the philosophy of technology. He has published in the areas of general philosophy of technology, philosophy of science, philosophy of biomedical technology, philosophy of sustainable technology and philosophy of information and communication technology (ICT). In general philosophy of technology, he has published on the relation between technology, society, culture and the body; the relation between technology and science; the nature of engineering design; and the status of philosophy of technology as a field. In the philosophy and ethics of biomedical technology, his research has focused on ethics of bioengineering, prosthetics, neuromodulation and human enhancement. Much of his current research is directed to the philosophy and ethics of ICT, where he has published on the ethical and political aspects of computer systems design, the limits of artificial intelligence, the ethics and ontology of virtuality, the role of ICT in mobility and surveillance, the implications of ICT for globalization, geographical organization and the quality of life. He is co-editor, with Thomas Misa and Andrew Feenberg, of Modernity and Technology (MIT Press, 2003) and (co)editor of two special issues of the journal Ethics and Information Technology. He currently manages a five-year Vici project in the philosophy of technology that involves six researchers and focuses on the social and cultural quality of new media.
