Description - Living in a Technological Culture by Hans Oberdiek
This text examines the relations between science, technology and culture; introducing basic concepts in ethics, and in the philosophy of science and technology. Some of the issues raised include facts, values, efficiency, instrumental rationality, pure and applied science, culture, politics and moral responsibility. The authors reveal not only the embeddedness of technologies in cultures, but also the distinctive ways in which modern technology is embedded in the cultures of Western industrialized countries.
