Mitcham convincingly shows why the engineering design stance is a better perspective to understand the intricacies of knowledge production and its problems than the approach based on science, technology or innovation. It also enables us to truly understand the world we live in. This book sets out the first steps for setting an agenda for an invigorating philosophical work.--Andoni Ibarra, University of the Basque Country, Editor of Theoria:
Carl Mitcham is one of the most authoritative voices in the philosophy of technology in Spain. His lifelong work has contributed to the understanding of how Western culture has changed through technology, having written important classics in this field. This new volume provides a new perspective on engineering as that form of human agency from which modern technology emerges.--Andoni Alonso, Professor of Philosophy, Complutense University of Madrid
Across the past three decades, few scholars have thought as carefully or cogently as Carl Mitcham about the technoscientific world taking shape around us. In Steps toward the Philosophy of Engineering, we are treated to many of his best thoughts all in one place. This is destined to be a landmark text.--Adam Briggle, Associate Professor of Philosophy and Religion, University of North Texas
