The philosophy of technology involves a complex of objects and problems that traverse metaphysics, epistemology, ethics and philosophical anthropology, as well as culture and society. Some recent discussions in the philosophy of technology have focused on the elucidation of the ontological, normative and epistemic dimensions of artificial worlds. What criteria do we apply to characterize an artifact as a ?good? artifact? What does the term ?good? mean when applied to the artificial world? What are the features of moral evaluations of the artificial world? When is an artificial novelty a genuine novelty? How do we know the artificial world? Do author and user find themselves in two different epistemic positions? Does the artificial have its own epistemology? What class of thing are artificial things? Are they different from natural kinds? Questions like these are found in research programs in both Continental and Analytic traditions in the philosophy of contemporary technology. The Third International Colloquium for Philosophy of Technology aims to address these and other issues, and to establish itself as an area of contact between two philosophical traditions: Analytic and Continental, which for various reasons remain apart. Under the theme of this meeting, Technical worlds: Ontological, Epistemological and Normative Aspects of Artificiality, it aims to bring together papers examining key concepts in contemporary debates concerning technology, opening new avenues of inquiry within the discipline, and strengthening the growth and collaboration between researchers devoted to the analysis of the phenomenon of technology.
