Critical Technology: A Social Theory of Personal Computing

Sampul Depan
Ashgate, 2004 - 139 halaman
Have we resigned ourselves to a cyber-future that has been decided behind our backs? Why is technology - and our understanding of it - central to the concerns of critical social theory? In developing the PC technologists have borrowed ideas from the human sciences about what people are like, about the nature of meaning and the desirability of some experiences over others. Yet, to date, the academic disciplines most concerned with these ideas have offered neither resistance nor debate. In this book, Graeme Kirkpatrick shows why it is crucial that we initiate that debate. Kirkpatrick argues that the computer is a contested space within which major social conflicts are played out. The outcomes of these conflicts are extremely important as they will shape our future experience of technology, society and politics.
