Overview

Confronts globalization and technology from philosophical perspectives.

Rather than focusing on political, economic, or social manifestations of technology and globalization, this book examines these related phenomena from a philosophical perspective. Prominent thinkers from philosophy, sociology, and political science reflect on a variety of important topics and individuals, including the Internet, citizenship, individuality, the human condition, spirituality, Nietzsche, Heidegger, Kojève, and Strauss. The contributors ask whether political community and citizenship are still possible in an age of technology and globalization, and what it means to be human in a globalized technological society.
