Contents
The course explores the new challenges of the technological age by analyzing its socio-cultural and anthropological premises and focusing on its main consequences in the regulatory sphere (ethics, law, professional ethics). The part of legal ethics, after a quick historical excursus, reflects on the forensic professions in a teleological and deontological perspective.
