PL401 Week 2 Discussion

Week 2


Choose and respond to one
of the following questions:

Question A

Using two concepts
from the reading (e.g. polypotency, artifact/idea, STS, etc…), critique the
myth of moral neutrality of technology. Provide some reasons to the effect that
technological development can be morally good or bad.

Question B

Do you think that the
ties between social circumstances and technology, thoroughly discussed in the
readings, should be a part of the definition of “technology?” Why or why not?

Use at least two of
this week’s readings as resources in your initial post.
