Technology and Society : A Philosophical Guide, Paperback / softback Book

Technology and Society : A Philosophical Guide Paperback / softback


James Gerrie offers an up-to-date introduction to the basic issues that have come to define the philosophy of technology: What is `technology'?

Does technology control our lives? What is technology's relation to ethics? How does technology influence us? Is the widespread belief in technological progress justified?

Later sections of the book examine the application of philosophy of technology to social issues such as climate change, urban sprawl, and automation.

Major issues and arguments are presented in an accessible and non-technical fashion, giving the reader a firm foundation in the field.
