Ethics in Practice
Design is a Praxis made of continuous introspection and aiming at practical wisdom (Ancient Greeks said Phronesis). Design expertise is based on knowledge and experience, but also on welcoming uncertainty as a driver. There is a need for ethical frameworks to support designers in making decision, taking responsibility, and opening discussion in society. Please do not reduce the beautiful discipline of Ethics to a set of moral judgments! It is complex in the noblest sense of the word, just as life is.
