Readings in the Philosophy of Technology collects the important works of both the forerunners and contemporary theorists of philosophy of technology, addressing a wide range of topics on technology as it relates to ethics, politics, human nature, computers, science, food, and the environment. Compiled specifically with students and newcomers in mind, this book explores the multiple ways in which humanity shapes and affects technologies and is, in turn, shaped and affected by them. Readers will learn to understand, evaluate, appreciate, and criticize the ways that technology both reflects and changes human life-individually, socially, and culturally. Readings in the Philosophy of Technology is an ideal core text for undergraduate courses in Philosophy of Technology, Science, Technology, and Society, and Ethics and Technology.
