Product Overview

The history of technology is often troubled by good ideas that do not, for one reason or another, take off right away sometimes for millennia. Often technology comes to a standstill, and sometimes, it even reverses itself. Thus, unlike science, which seems to proceed at a reasonable and calm rate, the progress of technology is difficult to conceptualie. While in science many developments are predictable to a certain extent and this predictability may, at times, direct or stymie sciences progress as with stem-cell research and cloning technological advances, such as the Internet, are often sudden and unpredictable, and therefore frightening. In Theory of Technology, David Clarke brings together nine experts who try to understand technology from a variety of viewpoints.
