The Proceedings of the Karlsruhe Academic Session (1997) of the
International Academy of the Philosophy of the Sciences cover the topic of
philosophy of technology. Half a dozen of other pertinent topical papers have
been added in order to extend the topics dealt with and to reach a rather
comprehensive overview of this multi-ramified field. Nowadays philosophy of
technology is not only confronted with new, anthropological and social as
well as political problems to deal with, but also with methodological
problems of the mutual interactions between science and technology, with
problems of reliability and viability of technology assessment, e. g. with
risks, environmental and social impact assessments. The importance and
necessity of a philosophy and a practice-oriented ethics of technology will
drastically rise and grow in the near future.
