The Ethics of Mobilities: Rethinking Place, Exclusion, Freedom and Environment
Sigurd Bergmann, Tore Sager
Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., 2008 - Transportation - 275 pages
With this book the international academic discourse on mobility is taken a step further, through the intertwined perspectives of different social sciences, engineering and the humanities. Mobilities in Transit builds upon the recent interest in social surveillance, raised by the use of technology for the surveillance and control of mobility as well as for transport. It widens this theme to encompass a broad scale of issues, ranging from freedom and escape to social exclusion and control, thus raising important questions of ethics, identity and metaphysics; questions that are dealt with by a diverse, yet structured range of chapters, arranged around the themes of ethics and religion, and freedom and control.
