The Questioning of Science and Technology (good for scientists and engineers)
By kemokid
Associated Interests:history of science, science, social criticism, technocracy, technology
1.The Structure of Scientific Revolutions (3rd edition)
Origin of the term "paradigm shift". Should be read by all science-y and techy people. Will disabuse you of any naive notions of the absolute "truth" of science, but without being idiotically postmodern.
2.The Future does not Compute
A critique of mindless pro-Internet, pro-technology views from a former programmer. I was reading this at the time I was radicalized on many different levels. On the web at http://www.praxagora.com/stevet/fdnc/toc.html
3.Technics and Human Development
Part 1 of Lewis Mumford's opus on human societies and the nature and development of power and technology.
4.The Pentagon of Power
Part 2 of the above. Brilliant ideas on every page.
