Abstract

The two books under review pursue separately what an appropriate philosophy of technology must accomplish: the articulation of an incisive and unified vision of the world on the one hand and on the other the consideration of the variety of ways in which technology shapes our lives and the search for fruitful counterforces to technology. Ballard's book attends to the first task, Borchert's and Stewart's anthology to the second. The two books also demonstrate that one task taken up without the other cannot be accomplished satisfactorily.
