From the Back Cover:

Philosophy of Technology: An Introduction skillfully guides readers through the core philosophical issues raised by technology’s increasingly ubiquitous and powerful presence in society and our daily lives. Considering first the question of what technology is, Dusek goes on to address a wide range of concerns, including technocracy, technological rationality, technological determinism, and varieties of resistance to technology. Penetrating study questions at the end of each chapter provide the necessary tools to critically examine the nature of technology and its impact on our lives.


Ideal for undergraduate students in philosophy and science studies, Philosophy of Technology offers an engaging and comprehensive overview of a subject vital to our time.
