Simply put, this book has had a profound influence on my daily thinking and academic practice. Weaving threads from the construction of ancient Chinese Bronzes through the technologies that permeate contemporary Western society, Franklin builds a dazzling description of the way technology is intertwined in our lives, society and culture.
This book is essential reading for anyone studying Technology & Society or Ethics, and is a wonderful pleasure to read. Buy it!

Ursula Franklin performs an unusual service in this book. She relates technology to other fields of human activity and thought in a manner that is exceptionally illuminating. With her knowledge and understanding of technology, the arts, education, the humanities, literature, politics, the basics of human nature, you name it, she comfortably puts together subjects that too often are dealt with in isolation from oneanother.
