Description
Summary:"Modern industrial society is an experiment with a brief past and an uncertain future. In less than two centuries, technology has transformed the globe and given the human race the power to realize its highest ideals or destroy itself. Questioning Technology offers the recognition of the democratic significance of public intervention into technical life We see that the rise and advance of information technology accounts for technologies ultimately crucial social and political position. If we continue to see technical and social domains as being separate, then we are essentially avoiding and denying an integral part of our existence, and our place in a democratic society. Questioning Technology convinces us that it is vital that we learn more about technology the better to live with it and manage it."--Publisher description.
