Molecular Nanotechnology Guidelines

Foresight Institute's goal is to guide emerging technologies to improve the human condition and the environment. Foresight's policy recognizes that nanotechnology — like all pivotal technologies — brings both potential perils and benefits. Engines of Creation, published in 1986, contained the chapters "Engines of Destruction" and "Strategies and Survival". A 1988 Foresight Background document included the section "A Dialog on Dangers". Part of Foresight's efforts to help achieve the advantages and avoid the dangers of nanotechnology has been the development of guidelines for research and development.
