Technology and Culture

Technology and Culture offers technical students an introduction to the interdisciplinary field of Science, Technology, and Society (STS). As such, it seeks to examine particular developments in the history of technology focusing on the role technology has played in the culture as a whole. Emphasis is placed on:

1 technology’s connotations in today’s world,

2 technology’s relations to culture, nature and politics,

3 the much debated correlation between “progress” and technological development in the Western world.
