Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Confronts globalization and technology from philosophical perspectives.

Rather than focusing on political, economic, or social manifestations of technology and globalization, this book examines these related phenomena from a philosophical perspective. Prominent thinkers from philosophy, sociology, and political science reflect on a variety of important topics and individuals, including the Internet, citizenship, individuality, the human condition, spirituality, Nietzsche, Heidegger, Kojève, and Strauss. The contributors ask whether political community and citizenship are still possible in an age of technology and globalization, and what it means to be human in a globalized technological society.

"This is a very timely book. It addresses a large vacuum in the literature by putting underlying issues front and center philosophically so they can be approached from a broad range of disciplines." — Frank Edler, Metropolitan Community College

Contributors include Ian Angus, Bernardo Alexander Attias, Darin Barney, Tom Darby, Andrew Feenberg, Gilbert Germain, Trish Glazebrook, Horst Hutter, Don Ihde, Toivo Koivukoski, Arthur Melzer, Waller R. Newell, David Tabachnick, Charlotte Thomas, and Donald Phillip Verene.

David Tabachnick is Fulbright Visiting Chair of International Studies at Portland State University. Toivo Koivukoski teaches political philosophy at Carleton University.
