PHIL 2013 - The Technological World

3 (3-0)

Technology exists to push the limits of humanity’s reach. Whether it’s a simple lever or pulley that helps us lift or move more, or a rocket that takes us higher and farther into space than ever before, technology thrives on the edge of human experience, just where we can go no further on our own. This course will explore technology as an extension of our human capacity for exploration and discovery, investigating the ways in which humans use technology to shape the world, and, moreover, how that technologically manipulated world can, in turn, shape us. The philosophical nature and significance of technology as such will also be a primary theme of this course.
