The Oxford Handbook of Philosophy of Technology

Edited by Shannon Vallor

Oxford Handbooks

  • Explores and explains the historical and emerging problems of technology, an area of study that is vital for human self-understanding, yet has for millennia been comparatively neglected by philosophers in the West
  • Cuts across a wide range of philosophical methodologies and literatures, allowing the reader to see how philosophical thinking about technology bridges the continental and analytic, conceptual and empirical, theoretical and practical divides
  • Exposes the still-living gaps, tensions, and omissions that mark our philosophical thinking about technology
