About this book

Natural disasters remind us of the capricious power of Nature. This book questions the way that modern science and technology are represented as the means to liberate human beings from the arbitrary natural imposition of forces beyond our control. Modern science is implicated in a societal gamble on the construction of a technological society to replace the natural world with a supposedly better artificial one. The author questions the rationality of this societal gamble and its implications for our lives.

The Capriciousness of Nature - The Metaphysics of Modern Science - The Technological Society - The Confrontation with Nature - Labour and the Life-World - Into the Future
