Technology entrepreneurship lies at the heart of many important debates, including those around launching and growing firms, regional economic development, selecting the appropriate stakeholders to take ideas to markets, and educating managers, engineers, and scientists. Rather, what determines if a technology de-humanizes or de-personalizes or objectifies nursing care is not technology in and of itself, but principally how technologies operate in the context of people; which are the significances that are attributed to it; how an individual or a cultural group defines what is human; and what the potential is for the technique to emphasize rational order or efficiency.
Can i just tell you with a humble heart and my intellect in wonder, as i’m no academic or much anything, even my science fiction reading history being coincidental or maybe synchronistic in many cases(this improved with time, i’m more systematically adept in reading now).
After having presented the major issues of philosophical relevance in technology and engineering that emerge in this way, we discuss the problems and challenges that technology poses for the society in which it is practiced in the third and final section.
Comprehensive works such as Vitruvius’ De architectura (first century BC) and Agricola’s De re metallica (1556) paid much attention to practical aspects of technology but little to philosophy. In 1966, in a special issue of the journal Technology and Culture, Henryk Skolimowski argued that technology is something quite different from science (Skolimowski 1966). It is all the more important to point out that humanities philosophy of technology cannot be differentiated from analytic philosophy of technology by claiming that only the former is interested in the social environment of technology. Technology was also a game-changer for Barton & Gray Mariners Club , a New Hampshire company that rents time on the expensive Hinckley yachts that it owns. A very wide range of people in industry and in private and public sector education have learning technology as a core part of their role: you do not have to be called or to call yourself a learning technologist to be one!
WHO has developed a reference document to provide an introduction to the concept and programme of health technology assessment (HTA) around the world and to highlight the contribution that HTA can make to informed policy and decision-making, particularly in developing and emerging countries.
