Over het boek
Impact! Is an initiative of Zoë Robaey and Shannon Spruit, two PhD candidates at the philosophy section of TU Delft. Their work revolves around ethical aspects of the development and introduction of new technologies in society.
The idea of Impact! developed through the regular ethics curriculum for engineering students at the TU Delft. Writing is the main medium of philosophy and the field relies on the quality of argumentation. However, this is not always the most accessible tool to communicate for students from technical backgrounds. This is why Robaey and Spruit explored the idea to develop other forms of expression for students to express their ethical views.
13 TU Delft students were brought to exchange with artists and philosophers and coached by Visual Communication coach Annick Spoelstra to express their ethical questions through visual media with the goal of engaging the public in their ethical concerns.
This is a reference book in which the complete project is presented: starting from the set up of Impact! to the exhibition of the final works.
