Technology and Sustainable Development

The Promise and Pitfalls of Techno-Solutionism

«

The widely celebrated benefits of technological development during the past two centuries are now overshadowed by evidence of grave troubles in society, economics, politics, and Earth’s climate, ones often delivered, alas, by the very same set of technical wonders. How are we to think about these astonishing contrasts? The writings gathered in this collection offer rigorous, insightful methods for exploring the major challenges that vex world society today. A treasure chest of theories and case histories, the book offers sustenance for all of those seeking fruitful alternatives.

--Langdon Winner, Professor at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, author of Autonomous Technology: Technics-out-of-control as a theme in political thought, and The whale and the reactor: A search for limits in an age of high technology.

An interesting collection of chapters that reflect on the role of technology vis-à-vis sustainable development. Highly relevant against the backdrop of the imminent risks created by climate change, and rightly critical of technosolutionist approaches, the contributions to this volume helpfully highlight the political aspects of this challenging conundrum. Not to be missed.

--Mark Coeckelbergh, Professor at the University of Vienna, author of AI Ethics, Green Leviathan, and The Political Philosophy of AI.
