Ethics in the City: Mark Kingwell

Ethics of AI in Context, Ethics in the City

Human Cities, Posthuman Cities

Traditional urban philosophy has focussed on the relationship between humans and their built environments. Thus the emphasis on spaces, forms and circulatory systems as conditioned by the physical features of people. A standard injunction of such philosophy would then be to make cities ‘more human’. But what if the standard human body is no longer the baseline for consciousness within cities? In such a case, cities would have to be reconceived at a basic level.
