Overview

This book analyzes the impact of technology in the modern age, an age obsessed with technological options. Rivers observes the absence of substantive changes and the descent into an immobile conscious. He argues that under the laws of our current mediocre morality, individualism is oppressed and freedom denied. Technology has become the means by which we surrender self-control, the manner by which we seek subjection. Contents: Introduction: The Definition of Terms and Conditions; The Phenomena of Technology: Essential Concepts and Fearless Misapprehensions; Termini Ad Quem: The Limits of Technology; The Point of No Return: Progress and the Linear View of History; The Crossing of the Styx: Stability, Sterility and Death; The Adulteration of Culture: The Impact of a Multitude; Lost Among the Stars: The Secularization of Religion; A Shortfall in Knowledge: Ignorance and the Proliferation of Information; A Disparaging Condition: Challenges to the Self; Human Bondage: Technology and a Technological Artifice.
