About this product
- DescriptionWe live in an age when the dominant techlogically utilitarian worldview is undergoing a transformation. To increase our awareness of this change, Turning Toward Techlogy introduces readers to the possibility of an alternative techlogical worldview by examining foundational concepts to Asian thought. The early Eastern philosophical treatment of techlogy was t ethical, but ontological, exhibiting sensitivity to how human existence was defined and determined in its relation to techlogy and to reality as a whole. Within the Eastern cultural orientation, techlogical development was guided by a singular aesthetic sensibility to the useful, the good, the beautiful, the true, and the holy. Instead of controlling the shape of future techlogy by systems of rational management, George Teschner and Alessandro Tomasi recommend a view of techlogy that arises from questioning fundamental assumptions within Western culture about kwledge, reality, and human nature. Turning Toward Techlogy aims to stimulate awareness of an alternative techlogical paradigm, and thus a different mode of social action that can establish an optimistic future for global civilization.
