Rethinking Technologies was first published in 1993. Grounded on the assumption that the relationship between the arts and the sciences is dictated by technology, the essays in Rethinking Technologies explore trends in contemporary thought that have been changing our awareness of science, technology, and the arts. Rethinking Technologies constitutes a significant contribution to the analysis of techno-cultures today.
It will definitely contradict those who still think that postmodernity is merely a fashionable term or an empty fad. -SubStance Rarely has a book done as much of what its title promises as this book. Not only were the authors re-thinking technologies but I found myself being challenged to think in ways in which I had not considered before. As such this book offers a unique and stimulating, if at times difficult to understand, re-think regarding technology, especially for western thinkers.
Definitely a must for those engaged in the critical study of technology and society from philosophical, psycbological, literary and discourse analysis perspectives. -Prometheus Contributors: Teresa Brennan, Patrick Clancy, Verena Andermatt Conley, Scott Durham, Thierry de Duve, Françoise Gaillard, Félix Guattari, N.
