Italienische Technikphilosophie für das 21. Jahrhundert
This book contains five original essays on the future of the technological civilisation written by major representatives of the current Italian philosophy of technology. Each of these essays outlines one influential view on this field. What they have in common is that they try to forecast the technical world of the first decades of the 21st century, especially its influence on the outer as well as – even more emphatically – on the inner human being. The texts, which have been published here for the first time, stand out both due to their radical ideas and their sober realism. These two stances on knowledge lay the foundations for every future view on the inner dimension of the technical civilisation. However, practised consistently, they may also enable the individual to step beyond this inner dimension to a sublime which again and again emerges simultaneously within the technical universe. The essays are accompanied by an overview on the current way of thinking about technology in Italy and a critique on the various positions.
