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.

About the Author:

David M. Kaplan is assistant professor of philosophy at the University of North Texas.

Review:

Kaplan has crafted a textbook that is extraordinarily useful as an introduction to the philosophy of technology. Professors who are relatively new to the field can assume that everything they need is represented in one volume, from which they can select the texts they are best able to teach. I look forward to using Readings in the Philosophy of Technology in my classes. (Feenberg, Andrew)

Kaplan's superb book is divided into six parts containing 31 readings, most newly published, by some of the leading philosophers in the area of technology...[It] provides a more comprehensive range of philosophical inquiries related to technology than previous books...in a way that stimulates and deepens the reader's understanding of technological development. (The American Journal Of Bioethics)

Kaplan's anthology is well designed....This is a very good anthology that accomplishes many of its stated aims. (Philosophy In Review)

This broad and sophisticated collection is just what this emerging field needs. Kaplan's text is far superior to any that I have used or seen. He does an excellent job of selecting readings that are accessible to undergraduates. (Thomas M. Power)
