Editorial Reviews


This is an important book. Lorenzo Simpson has given us a tough-minded, cool-eyed, warm-hearted critique of the technological perspective and of the post-modernist response . . . extraordinarily rich in language and subtle in conception.
–Marx W. Wartofsky, Baruch College

This book is an excellent contribution both to cultural theory and to substantive moral philosophy. Lorenzo Simpson offers a subtle and scholarly account of the eclipse of imminent by instrumental value in the 'postmodern' world; at the same time, his distinctive voice brings home to us how our lives are impoverished by this development and how we can resist it.
–Sabina Lovibond, Worcester College

Lorenzo Simpson's major new work on technology, temporality, and ethics is clearly the product of wide reading and mature reflection. . . . His discussions of Heidegger, Gadamer, Habermas, Rorty and a host of other major theorists are uniformly first-rate.
–Thomas McCarthy, Northwestern University
