The technology, mythology and economy of technology

The technology, mythology and economy of technology Although technology has always been, and will continue to be, the hallmark of human activity, it remains a poorly understood concept. There is little recognition that behind technology lies a technology, the accelerating application of which is making the presence of the technological revolution more and more visible. The most obvious manifestation of this is the increasing frequency in the redefinition of the way in which society lives and works. This article, while demonstrating humankind as technology creatures, provides an explanation of how society progresses or regresses by resolving or failing to resolve the paradoxes inherent in technology through uncovering both its mythology and economy. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Management Decision Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Although technology has always been, and will continue to be, the hallmark of human activity, it remains a poorly understood concept. There is little recognition that behind technology lies a technology, the accelerating application of which is making the presence of the technological revolution more and more visible. The most obvious manifestation of this is the increasing frequency in the redefinition of the way in which society lives and works. This article, while demonstrating humankind as technology creatures, provides an explanation of how society progresses or regresses by resolving or failing to resolve the paradoxes inherent in technology through uncovering both its mythology and economy.
