What is Technological Determinism?
John Spacey, updated on October 27, 2016
Technological determinism is the idea that technology dictates the direction of society and culture and not the other way around. It is based on the historical observation that new technologies are released without much thought to their impact. Such technology may transform societies and cultures in significant ways. Technological determinism is also based on the observation that governments, societies and cultures are slow to try to shape technology or manage its risks.
