About this book

Do we control technology or does technology control us? Explosive progress in the twentieth century has led to the disquieting perception that technology is not the servant of humanity but its master. "Controlling Technology" brings together readings that focus on the conflicting views concerning the nature of modern technology as it relates to the quality of everyday life and to the larger problems of human survival on this planet. The thesis that technology has indeed become autonomous and independent of human ideals is contrasted with the position that, by its very nature, technology can exist only under human control. This excellent collection of essays will be of great value as a reader for undergraduate courses in science and technology studies, technology and human values, and the social dimensions of technology.
