Nanobiotechnology is particularly concerned with nano-scale properties and
applications in the field of the life sciences. As nanobiotechnologies
bring together spheres which have hitherto been separated, namely the
technical and the biological spheres, the public often regards this
technology with a certain amount of warniness. On the other hand
nanotechnology promises progress in a number of fields such as health care
or environmental monitoring. Certainly important and desirable aims would
be met if these expectations were to be realized in the future. For the
informed public it will therefore be of great importance to gain an
unbiased overview of the chances and potential risks of nanobiotechnology.
This volume is mainly concerned with the possible ethical and social
implications of nanobiotechnology.
