New Technologies And The Ethics Of Extreme Risks

Ends and Means 5 (2) (2001)
Abstract
In this paper I intend to discuss social decision-making involving extreme risks. By an extreme risk, I mean a potential outcome of an act for which the probability is low, but whose negative value is high. Extreme risks are often discussed when new technologies are introduced into society. Nuclear power and genetic engineering are two well-known examples.
