Название: The Technological System
Автор: Ellul J.
TECHNOLOGY is not content with being, or in our world, with being the
principal or determining factor. Technology has become a system. This
is what I will try to show in this analysis. But we have to be clear about
the object of my research. Twenty-five years ago, I arrived at the notion
of the "technological society"; but now, that stage is passed.
Nevertheless, we are faced with the major problem of what makes up the
specific nature of our society, its chief characteristic. Indeed, we have to
track down the key to interpreting the modern age. But if we go through
the field of definitions that are generally accepted today, we will see that
every so-called specific trait is actually secondary and points ultimately to
technology. Let us investigate.
