Ethics and Computer Simulations

This chapter has the sole purpose of asking the following question: is there an ethics that emerges in the context of computer simulations? In order to properly answer this question, we need to investigate the specialized literature to see how issues have been approached. The first problem that we encounter is the question of whether such an ethics actually exists, or rather if moral concerns in computer simulations can be approached by a more familiar ethical framework.
