PL 3840 - Philosophy of Technology

A philosophical inquiry into the impact of technology on society, culture, and the human person, including epistemological, metaphysical and ethical implications of the human development and use of technology. Since the very existence of technology opens up new possibilities for decision making and action, technology comes into contact with human values and becomes part of the development of human society. And so, this course seeks to provide a philosophical understanding of the role of technology in our lives, and highlights the concerns that face a “technological society.”

Prerequisite: PL 1100  or PL 1150 .
