Continuities and discontinuities in ethical reflections on digital virtual reality

Journal of Mass Media Ethics 18 (3 & 4):155 – 172 (2003)
This article considers the ethical implications of digital virtual reality (DVR) within the context of the place of virtual reality in general in human life and development. This is elaborated through a comparative analysis of the continuity and discontinuity between virtual reality in other mediated forms and DVR. The important role played by virtual reality in human creativity and adaptation sets the context for considering the ethics of DVR in 4 main areas: epistemological questions, questions of distraction and displacement, the content of DVR, and questions of power.
