    RESPONSIBILITY OF TECHNOLOGY

    The final goal of our use of things is for full or ultimate being:  such being requires no techniques or nor is that goal assured by the grandeur of science. The ultimacy of being is not a technological of ultimacy but a human ultimacy. Because all agree that the techne of technology is for the use of human being. This means to say that technology is made for man, not man for technology. This is another way of saying that while technology is the end to which human ingenuity; humanity is the end at which technology arrives. Technology has its legitimacy: that is, it’s the sole justification in humanity, only…

    ANALYZING TECHNOLOGY

    To analyze is to conduct conceptual investigation that characteristically, though not invariably, involve studies of the language, in which the concept in question is, or can be expressed. The definition of a concept can be determined by uncovering the underlying logical structures, or logical forms of the sentences used to express it. Analyzing technology is a reflection on the relation between science and technology –an attitude that is often presented, perhaps somewhat dramatized, in the form of a claim that technology is “merely” applied science. Questioning of this relation should be a central issue. Science concern itself with what is, whereas technology concerns itself with what is to be. Technology…

    RATIONALITY OF TECHNOLOGY

    It has to be understood that limiting technology to high-tech industries such as computers, superconductivity, chips, genetic engineering, robotics, magnetic railways and so on focuses excessive attention on what the media consider newsworthy. However, limiting technology to science, engineering and mathematics also loses sight of other supporting technologies. Actually technology includes more than machines, processes and invention. Traditionally, it might concentrate more on hardware; however in these days, more on soft side as well. Technology represents the combination of human understanding of natural laws and phenomena accumulated since ancient times to make things fulfill our needs and desires or that performs certain functions. In other words technology has to create…

    THE THEME OF TECHNOLOGY

    It is held that technology or art, imitates nature in some cases, and even (in other cases completes what nature cannot bring to finish). Artifacts on the other hand, cannot reproduce themselves. For instance, there is no way a wooden bed can reproduce itself. The word ‘technology’ derived from the Greek word ‘techne’. It is basically translate into technical knowledge and less into crafts or products, contemporary technology mostly refer to products such as instruments and machines. A television for instance is a technology. Quantitatively, technology can be interpreted as techne and technology are the same because contemporary technology is a consequence of the accumulated development of earlier, more primitive,…
