Philosophy and Technology

Mitcham, Carl

Technology creates all sorts of economic, social, and environmental problems. In conjunction with its obvious and oft-praised benefits, technology has transformed regional into national and supranational economies, modified or destroyed social and political institutions, and been the direct cause of massive environmental deterioration. All this is now widely recognized. What is not always equally well appreciated is that technology also raises a number of distinctly philosophical problems- that, in fact, other problems are often philosophical ones in disguise or otherwise heavily involved with basic philosophical issues.
