Technology and the Changing Face of Humanity

by Richard Feist Chantal Beauvais Rajesh Shukla

Technology and the Changing Face of Humanity is a philosophical examination of technology's growing influence on the human experience. Rejecting the notion of technology as a neutral addition to our lives, the contributors examine the type and degree of our societies' technological dependence. Technology is revealed as something from which we have, and will continue to have, difficulty separating ourselves, both as individuals and as a society. Without articulating a purely deterministic perspective, this collection illuminates the powerful influence technology has on our world and our perception of it.
