Technique, Discourse, and Consciousness: An Introduction to the Philosophy of Jacques Ellul by David Lovekin

Technique, Discourse, and Consciousness: An Introduction to the Philosophy of Jacques Ellul examines contemporary French thinker Jacques Ellul's seminal analysis of how technology manipulates and impoverishes modern thought, culture, and language. In this first book-length philosophical study, Lovekin explores Ellul's writing as both a philosophy of technology and a philosophy of culture, locating Ellul's thought in relation to G. W. F. Hegel and Ernst Cassirer. The central term in this examination is the symbol, which Ellul defines as the means and mode of interaction between consciousness and its world.
