Editorial Reviews


'This latest addition to the New Waves series will be of interest to students of science and technology studies, or anyone who is concerned about technology, globalization, and the future of humanity. The collection of essays contained in this volume provides wide ranging discussions of current developments in post-phenomenology, hermeneutics, critical theory, metaphysics, posthumanism, transhumanism, ethics, communication theory, and Heideggerian thinking about technology. It will be a useful resource for postgraduate and advanced undergraduate courses.' - Karl Rogers, University of Bath, UK and University of Belgrano, Buenos Aires, Argentina
