Synopsis

"Technology sets us free, it makes our life better, says the optimist. Or does it? Perhaps technology, with its noise, danger, death, and menace presents us with the greatest threat to human happiness and fulfillment, says the pessimist. Perhaps if its fruits are destructive then we can control the bad parts of technology, argues the realist. No, argues the structuralist, technology must complement life. This is how technology best serves us. What do you say? Is technology bad or good? These are the central questions of this book, a work that analyzes four ways that technology is understood."
