A Companion to Philosophy of Technology

Jan-Kyrre Berg Olsen, Stig Andur Pedersen (Editor), Vincent F. Hendricks (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportAnthology


The aim of philosophy of technology is to help us understand technology's complex interrelationships with the environment, society, culture - and with our very existence. A Companion to the Philosophy of Technology is the first comprehensive, authoritative reference source for this burgeoning and increasingly important field.

Drawing on groundbreaking new essays by a distinguished team of multi-disciplinary experts, A Companion to the Philosophy of Technology delves deeply into technology's impact on our lives and on society. The essays both represent a variety of epistemological approaches, including those of the humanities, social studies, natural science, sociology, psychology, and engineering sciences and reflect a diversity of philosophical traditions such as pragmatism, analytical philosophy, and phenomenology.

Erudite and authoritative, A Companion to the Philosophy of Technology is a major contribution to one of the fastest-growing and most vital areas of scholarship and study today.
