About this product
- DescriptionThe history of techlogy is often troubled by good ideas that do t, for one reason or ather, take off right away-sometimes for millennia. Sometimes, techlogy comes to a standstill, and sometimes, it even reverses itself. Thus, unlike science, which seems to proceed at a reasonable and calm rate, the progress of techlogy is diffi cult to theorize about. While in science many developments are predictable to a certain extent and this predictability may, at times, direct or stymie science's progress-as with stem-cell research and cloning-techlogical advances, such as the Internet, are often sudden and unpredictable, and therefore frightening. In Theory of Techlogy, David Clarke brings together ten authors who try to understand techlogy from a variety of viewpoints.
- Author BiographyDavid Clarke, professor emeritus at Southern Illinois University, has degrees in philosophy, architecture, management science, and urban design.
