Abstract: Information and Communication Technologies
(ICTs) have penetrated during the last 20 years all
human activities everywhere on the Earth. Humanity
has entered into the information age, virtual
reality and even virtual worlds have been crated.
The basic ethical questions stay as they have
always been: How are we to live? What are we to
be? Basic answers are, of course, that we ought
to live good lives and be good persons.
The aim of this article is:
• To specify what “living a good life” and
“being a good person” could be in the information
age;
• To identify some challenges and opportunities
ICTs offer in this context.
