Book review by Andrew P. Rebera: ‘Doing’ technology ethics: Review of Marc Steen’s ‘Ethics for people who work in tech, Journal of Ethics and Emerging Technologies, 33, 1 (2023): ‘Its overall project—practical advice on how to think about and implement ethics in tech—is well-conceived. Steen delivers on the project too: ideas are presented accessibly, without dumbing-down; technical terminology is introduced but neither relied on nor hidden behind; in style, the author is present but not overbearing, advises without preaching, instructs without talking down‘.
