Invasive technification : critical essays in the philosophy of technology in SearchWorks catalog
Technological infrastructure and the instutions of a technified society today determine what perception is, how we communicate and what forms of social life are possible.
A fundamental new conception of technology is therefore required. Technology can no longer be seen simply as a means of efficiently attaining pre-established ends. Rather, it needs to be considered as a total structure, something which makes some forms of human action and human relationship possible, while limiting the possibilities of others.
In Intensive Technification, the celebrated German philosopher Gernot Bohme offers a critique of technology that explores the many dimensions in which technology presents problems for modern human beings.
It is a book about the preservation of humanity and humane values under the challenging conditions of a technically advanced civilisation and makes a crucial contribution to our understanding of the issues around the philosophy of technology today.
