“Nanotechnology is one of the hottest areas of technological research. The business’s competition is strong, progress is fast and inevitable, and regula-tion is a problem. It is evident that applied ethics is entitled to focus on this new, challenging field. And ‘nanoethics’ can be the label we use to refer to this branch of applied ethics.”
If we consider the previous line of reasoning, it may seem that there is no doubt that nanoethics exists. We can just discuss about its nature: what are the most compelling issues, what are the best arguments in favour and against the main ethical positions about them, and so on. And we can, of course, do nanoethics – what is not the same thing as discussing about how nanoethics is like. We might be surprised, then, by realizing that the very is-sue whether there can be such a thing called ‘nanoethics’ is also intensely de-bated – often by the very same people who are doing nanoethics and are defending a specific idea about how nanoethics actually is or should be like.
