Value Sensitive Design: Shaping Technology with Moral Imagination Cover Image

Implantable medical devices and human dignity. Private and secure access to information. Engineering projects that transform the Earth. Multigenerational information systems for international justice.

How should designers, engineers, architects, policy makers, and others design such technology? Who should be involved and what values are implicated?

In Value Sensitive Design, Batya Friedman and David Hendry describe how both moral and technical imagination can be brought to bear on the design of technology. With value sensitive design, under development for more than two decades, Friedman and Hendry bring together theory, methods, and applications for a design process that engages human values at every stage.
