Law, Human Agency and Autonomic Computing. The Philosophy of Law Meets the Philosophy of Technology
Autonomic computing refers to self-managing computing systems that are capable of reconfiguring their own program in order to sustain their functionality. It implies a minimisation of human intervention and raises a host of questions around the issues of personal autonomy, identity, legal personhood and what has been called 'the statistical governance of the real' (Rouvroy).
This edited volume contains chapters by legal philosophers such as Massimo Durante, Roger Brownsword, Mireille Hildebrandt, Hyo Kang, Stefano Rodota and Antoinette Rouvroy, confronted with philosophers of technology such as Don Ihde, Jos de Mul and Bibi van den Berg, Jannis Kallinikos, Paul Mathias and Peter-Paul Verbeek.
