  • Introduction

    For the ancient Greeks the word techne meant skill with art, or craft. Plato and Plotinus adopted a hierarchy of knowledge which expanded in an ascending scale from crafts to science and it moved from the physical to the intellectual. Technical art here ranked somewhere in the middle of this schema. The 21st century has remained indispensable insofar as the history of the human person is concerned. This is because of the innovations made in communication, travels, interpersonal relationship and in social emancipation. Here one can rarely recount the glories of technology. However, in the midst of these glories are challenges which technology bring. Hence, it has become relevant to discuss the place of philosophy in technology. And how Philosophy can be adopted as the moral voice to reducing to the barest minimum the abuses of technology to the human person. Technophilosophy seeks for a particular techno-ethics. Hence the human person will no long be a mere automata, but one that is full of life and an end in itself. This issues shall adopt pragmatic method in dealing with relevant issues in Philosophy and technology, with special focus on the impact of technology to the human society.
