More About This Textbook

Overview

Technology does not belong to the province of just one philosophical school, or even to philosophy itself. It is complex and deep enough to transcend the bounds of any one method of research and of any particular set of philosophical presuppositions. So conclude the editors of Lifeworld and Technology, which grew out of a conference held at Duquesne University. In this volume of essays written by philosophers of a variety of backgrounds (pragmatist, phenomenological, existentialist, deconstructionist, analytic, hermeneutic), technology, its place in modern life, and its ramifications are discussed in etail. The essays touch on such varied topics as turbojets, biomedical technology, architecture, reading, and politics. Contents: Technology and Liberation, by Algis Mickunas; Nazi Biomedical Technologies, by Robert N. Proctor; On Going to Church and Technology, by Carl Mitcham; and more. Index. Co-published with Center for Advanced Research in Phenomenology.
