"How has technology changed what it means to be human and to be a member of a human society? How has technology changed the way we acquire knowledge of the world we inhabit? In light of these changes and the direction we are moving, how should the pursuit of knowledge be organized? Social Epistemology and Technology provides insights into such questions relating to public self-awareness regarding technology. The concerns addressed in this book apply to a large and diverse audience including, but not limited to, those interested in social epistemology, technology, cultural studies, trans-humanism, augmented subjectivity, futurology, human sciences, social sciences, political sciences, communication, psychology, science and technology studies and philosophy.
