Andrey Medushevskiy

Economics and Society of the Information Age

2001. Vol. 5. No. 1. P. 113–123 [issue contents]

The technological process has long been considered in science outside its social context. This led many social thinkers to pessimistic conclusions about the possibility of finding a harmonious synthesis between cultural traditions and innovations, society and technology.  The desire to overcome this gap led to the emergence of a special scientific direction - the philosophy of technology. The basis of this article is the speech of prof. Medushevsky on the occasion of the presentation of the Russian edition of the book by Professor of the University of Berkeley (California, USA) Manuel Castells "Information age: economy, society and culture."
