Discerning Prometheus: The Cry for Wisdom in Our Technological Society

Sampul Depan
Fairleigh Dickinson Univ Press, 2001 - 214 halaman
This book probes four leading positions that interpret and implement modern technology: optimism, pessimism, realism, and the structuralists. These positions are analyzed for the meaning, the social and personal place given to technology, as well as the foundational values that define modern technology. The book also attempts to demonstrate how these foundational principles affect social and personal behaviour and thus continually aks what place technology should occupy in our lives.
