This course deals with the consequences of computer science. Its aim is to establish an understanding of the fact that computer systems intervene in manifold ways in our private and professional lifes and shapen them. Many of these influences bring about major risks and need a conscious and enlightened composition in which computer scientists by nature play an important role -- or should at least do so.
We will for example have a look at how computerisation influences our private sphere, economics and society as a whole, our security and working environment. A conceptual introduction will provide orientational knowledge besides basic knowledge (Verfügungswissen) and strategies how to deal with both: analyse critically and get involved in the technical development.
