Inhaltsangabe: Book by Das Mitra Kolack Shirley

Críticas: « This book is readable, provocative, and insightful and is especially useful because the material is not easily accessible elsewhere.

«There has hitherto been no single, manageable volume that can introduce undergraduates - both those preparing for technical professions (who need to understand the cultural context of their career) and those in the arts and sciences (who need to be technically literate) - to the complex role that technology has played in the broader culture. The book's grounding in social science gives it a down-to-earth, concrete solidity and its smooth style and clear organization should make it accessible to all readers, including interested members of the general reading public. -- Melvin Cherno

Buchbeschreibung Peter Lang Nov 2007, 2007. Taschenbuch. Buchzustand: Neu. 228x151x12 mm. Neuware - Technology is not value-free; nor does it exist in a vacuum. It needs a social basis - technology is affected by society and influences it. Technology, Values, and Society illustrates this using an examination of cross-cultural case studies representing simple, intermediate, and complex societies. Certain forms of technology exist when conducive values and structures sustain them. However, this relationship is not one-way. Technological changes do precipitate social and value changes. It is impossible to sustain egalitarian values in a society involving technology based on hierarchical relationships. Understanding this connection is vital if we are to keep some control over the way in which technology affects us. This revised edition brings the topic to life for both faculty and students. 160 pp. Englisch. Artikel-Nr. 9781433101892
