About this product
- DescriptionThe term techlogical fix should mean a fix provided by techlogy--a solution for all of our problems, from medicine and food production to the environment and business. Instead, techlogical fix has come to mean a cheap, quick fix using inappropriate techlogy that usually creates more problems than it solves. This collection sets out the distinction between a techlogical fix and a true techlogical solution. Bringing together scholars from a variety of disciplines, the essays trace the techlogical fix as it has appeared throughout the twentieth century. Addressing such fixes as artificial hearts, industrial agriculture and climate engineering, these essays examine our need to turn to techlogy for solutions to all of our problems.
