Editorial Reviews

Review

"The book is certainly worth consideration for some of the truly wonderful articles it does contain." (CHOICE, 2009)

“The emphasis on environment highlights the current importance of the topic, and will probably be the quickest to date.” (Reference Reviews, February 2010)

From the Back Cover

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.
