About the podcast series

The monthly podcasts are concerned with the ethical reflection on diverse COVID-19 measures. In this series, philosophers of technology are asked to consider how the pandemic challenges practices and institutions and how ethical reflection can provide a better understanding of these challenges and the responses to them. 

The series is a joint initiative of the Delft Design for Values Working Group on the COVID-19 Crisis and is funded by 4TUEthics. The working group was initiated by TPM researchers Matthew Dennis and Jeroen van den Hoven. Steffen Steinert (TPM) manages the series.
