Philosophy of technology and engineering

Technology has come to play a defining role in society. Every major activity in our lives, such as work, play, learning, communication, and travel, centrally depends on technology. All major institutions of society, such as government, healthcare, defense, education, religion, and law, are increasingly fixated around technology, and changes in them are to a large extent driven by technology. Modern technology has had many benefits for humanity, enhancing welfare and individual freedom, but has also brought harms, ranging from environmental problems to issues of rationalization and alienation.
The aim of the research programme is to perform a philosophical analysis of technology and its role in contemporary society.
