In this extraordinary introduction to the study of the philosophy of technology, Andrew Feenberg argues that techonological design is central to the social and political structure of modern societies. Environmentalism, information technology, and medical advances testify to technology's crucial importance.
In his lucid and engaging style, Feenberg shows that technology is the medium of daily life. Every major technical changes reverberates at countless levels: economic, political, and cultural. If we continue to see the social and technical domains as being seperate, then we are essentially denying an integral part of our existence, and our place in a democratic society.
Questioning Tecchnology convinces us that it is vital that we learn more about technology the better to live with it and to manage it.

Review:

"Andrew Feenberg's Questioning Technology" is a cutting edge philosophy of technology which provocatively argues for the democratization of technology and subjecting technology to democratic debate and reconstruction. One of the most important books on technology in the "present era
."
-Douglas Kellner, UCLA
"Quite simply one of the best books in the field of philosophy of technology
."
-Andrew Light, SUNY-Binghampton
"Andrew Feenberg identifies social choices within the essence of technology, thus opening up paths to democratization
."
-Les Levidow, Managing Editor, "Science as Culture
"Feenberg excels at unpacking the various technological approaches to manipulating the world that come to be misleading described in the singluar as 'technology'."
-M. Carleton Simpson, Wilfrid Laurier University
