The Future of Post-Human Engineering: A Preface to a New Theory of Technology
Why should engineering be held in such a high esteem as representing the human future in this technophilic age of ours?

Why should engineering be held in such a high esteem as representing the human future in this technophilic age of ours? Or differently put, is there something fundamentally wrong with the way that the impact of technology in both culture and society has been understood, especially though not exclusively since the modern era? Contrary to the conventional wisdom of our time, the euphoria about technology (as the combined outcome of science and engineering) in the modern era is much misleading, to the extent that its double sides need to be re-examined, from the unsuspected surface to its troubling core. This book, therefore, takes on the challenging task to provide a new way of looking at the impact of technology in both culture and society, without, however, favoring any specific ideology in the political spectrum - be it Luddist, technophilic, postmodernist, or other. If successful, this seminal theory on the nature of technology in relation to science and engineering will change the way that we think about the nature of science, engineering, and technology, in a small sense - and about the human future and its 'post-human' fate, in a large one.
