Technology and the Good Life
Eric Higgs, Andrew Light, David Strong
Philosophers of technology offer views for and against the device paradigm proposed by Albert
Borgmann (philosophy, U. of Montana) in his 1984 Technology and the Character of Contemporary Life.
They apply it in such areas as film, agriculture, design, and ecological restoration to consider
whether people can take charge of their lives with technology. The 17 studies are from a September-October
conference in Jasper, Alberta.Book News, Inc.
