NALLI, Marcos. Quando as tecnologias embaralham nossas vidas: as nanotecnologias. Estud. soc [online]. 2009, vol.17, n.34, pp. 277-292. ISSN 0188-4557.
Despite the obvious scientific and technological advances, the use of nanostructured products can be highly beneficial or harmful to any living being. There are risks, but there are also promises ... Therefore, it is urgent to interpret ethics of nanotechnology: not a moral discourse on "rights", thinking in categories of good and evil, and formulating deontological rules. Nanotechnologies help to think what is the status of living beings, especially human beings, based on binomial - often misunderstood and misinterpreted - of the artificiality and nature: their interaction is characterized primarily in the human ability (that nanotechnology only radicalizes) for the transformation of their environment.
