Introduction (Technology and the City)

Michael Nagenborg, T.W. Stone, P.E. Vermaas

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceedings/Edited volumeChapterScientificpeer-review


Technology is no stranger to the city. Cities are planned, built, maintained, governed, demolished, and destroyed by technical means. Yet, the city has yet to receive much attention within the philosophy of technology. This volume addresses this gap, and in doing so contributes to the much-needed discussion on technology-enabled urban futures from the perspective of the philosophy of technology. In this introductory chapter, the larger volume is introduced by reflecting on the rationale and need for such a collection, sketching the main themes analyzed throughout, and providing an overview of the contributions.
