Technology Serving Humanity

Philosophical and Ethical Reflections

  • Michael Ryan

Abstract

Technology is a remarkable gift, but it needs wisdom to manage it well. Its handling has become a real drama, if not a tragedy, in our days. In this paper, we will try to understand how we arrive at our current predicament and offer some orientation regarding how to administer technological power appropriately. Without any pretense of originality, we draw on the thoughts of three significant philosophers—Descartes, Heidegger, and Jonas.
