Introduction to Philosophy of Technology

Front Cover
Oxford University Press, 2019 - Technology - 336 pages
Addressing the technological opportunities and challenges of the 21st century, Introduction to Philosophy of Technology offers the most up-to-date and comprehensive overview of philosophy of technology available. It covers several of the classic theories and approaches, but also moves beyond
them to explore a broader range of theories and a number of new dynamics in the field, including responding to new technological developments. Esteemed scholar Mark Coeckelbergh emphasizes how new technological developments stimulate philosophical thinking--and rethinking--and how philosophers of
technology could do more to interact with other subdisciplines in philosophy and fields beyond academia, such as art and policy.
