Geoff Crocker's A Managerial Philosophy of Technology is a highly readable text; in a straightforward style he introduces the reader to the literature of the philosophy of technology, offering a substantive critique and a credible new thesis. He also provides fascinating first-hand examples of the interaction of science, humanity and market (e.g. Russian manufacturing) as well as overview through eg tabulated analytics: fuel cell technologies (pp 99-100), productivity and social structures (p142), technology determination (pp 174-6).
Chapter 2 is a 35 page review of the field literature covering 1) definitions: Rationality, Human enhancement, Cyborg ontology, Instrumentalism 2) analytics: Determinism, Autonomy, Social constructivism, Technocracy, Utopia and dystopia 3) moderatons: Heidigger's saving power, Borgmann's faith, Feenberg's democratisation. I (new to the topic) found this chapter to be an easy to read introduction to the field and was very surprised to learn that philosophy of technology has only a small corpus of literature.
The model he proposes 'Comprehensive Systems Network Philosophy of Technology' in chapter 3 covers assumptions and contexts or 'entities' (nature, science, technology, productivity, the economy, society, ecology) with both top down and grassroots analyses. This chapter is extensive with lots of analysis and anecdote - very engaging.
Chapter 4 discusses responses to the offered model in terms of 'so what' implications for people, consumers, workers, voters, businesses, education, society and government. The basic theme is that the role of technology is poorly understood with the alarming implication that modern societies do not appreciate the way that humanity both creates and is being shaped by technology development mediated by markets and behind those, capital.
In keeping with the book's title the author offers both critique of present understandings and a new sophisticated alternative model together with specific application possibilities for technology businesses. Given that the well being of a growing world population depends upon rising productivity delivered by technological enhancements, this book makes clear that management of technology is a little understood but very significant challenge - in my view much more so than the short run challenges of economic management.
