    Developing the Ethical Delphi.Kate Millar, Erik Thorstensen, Sandy Tomkins, Ben Mepham & Matthias Kaiser - 2007 - Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Ethics 20 (1):53-63.
    A number of EU institutions and government committees across Europe have expressed interest in developing methods and decision-support tools to facilitate consideration of the ethical dimensions of biotechnology assessment.

    Public Involvement and Narrative Fallacies of Nanotechnologies.Erik Thorstensen - 2014 - NanoEthics 8 (3):227-240.
    This paper analyzes a European research project called ‘Deepening Ethical Engagement and Participation in Emerging Nanotechnologies’ with the abbreviation DEEPEN. The DEEPEN’s findings and conclusions on the narratives, public understandings and the lay ethics of nanotechnologies are examined in a critical manner. Through a criticism of the theoretical framings of what constitutes a narrative and the application of a different theoretical framing of narratives, the paper argues that the findings and conclusion of the DEEPEN should be approached with caution as (...)

    Creating Golems: Uses of Golem Stories in the Ethics of Technologies.Erik Thorstensen - 2017 - NanoEthics 11 (2):153-168.
    People tell stories. In stories, the narrator and the receiver can perceive meanings. These meanings can be analyzed again through larger interpretative framings. In this article, different ethical uses of the golem story are analyzed by making use of some of Jörn Rüsen’s ideas concerning historical thinking and narration and with a focus on the uses of the golem myth in studies and discussions on new and emerging science and technology.

This paper discusses the systematic assessment of assistive technologies in order for them to meet the aims expressed in RRI. A central issue in the discussion is how to facilitate an integration of insights from the discourse on RRI with more established assessment approaches such as Health Technology Assessment. Based on the (...)
