Example text

An excellent conceptual development for technology was done in the context of polytechnic education, among others by Dietrich Blandow (1992). Unfortunately much of that got lost when polytechnic education was abandoned almost immediately after the breakdown of the communist system in the late 1980s. Both the existentialist and the neo-Marxist approach were continued after the death of their respective founding fathers. Still today they form two major forms of critique concerning the position of technology in human lives, nature, society and culture.

Teaching about technology. An introduction to the philosophy of technology for non-philosophers. Dordrecht: Springer. de Vries, M. J. (2005b). Analyzing the complexity of nanotechnology. Techné, 8(3), 62–75. de Vries, M. J. (2008). Gilbert Simondon and the dual nature of technical artifacts. Techné, 12(1), 23–35. de Vries, M. J. (2010). Introducing Van Riessen’s work in the philosophy of technology. Philosophia Reformata, 75(1), 2–9. de Vries, M. J. (2012). Utopian thinking in contemporary technology versus responsible technology for an imperfect world.

That stimulates a deterministic view of technology. The dual nature view liberates us from a deterministic view of technology (or at least provides an important underpinning for a nondeterministic view). J. de Vries In the epistemology of technology, a main focus has been to show that technology is not just applied science, as has been suggested since the 1950s. This, too, is a critique of conventional ideas about technology that may hamper us to develop a view of technology in which things are not just as they are, but are a matter of decision making.
