Summary

The author here contends that we "talk about what we can do with machines--and what machines do to us--but seldom about the moral or political significance of technical systems in themselves. The pervasiveness of technology in the modern world, he argues, makes this latter task essential if we are to awake from what he describes as our 'technological somnambulism,' a condition in which we let technology lead us where it will. Only a proper awareness of the values he claims are embedded in the machines that make up our living and working environments will allow us to decide how we should limit technology."(N Y Times Book Rev)
