The Triumph of Technology

Man’s way of life has depended on technology since the begin of civilization – the flint stone, the control of fire, the wheel, the printing press. In the earliest times significant advances were rare and they were separated by long periods of time – but their benefits, and disadvantages, were easily understood.

About two hundred years ago, however, the pace quickened and in recent decades a cascade of truly disruptive advances has revolutionized the way we live. The technologies behind the advances have become increasingly complex and few people understand how they work and fewer still where they are going. The social implications of the advances have also ceased to be obvious and it has become essential that we study their social consequences.
