French Philosophy of Technology - Classical Readings and Contemporary Approaches


Offering an overall insight into the French tradition of philosophy of technology, this volume is meant to make French-speaking contributions more accessible to the international philosophical community. The first section, 'Negotiating a Cultural Heritage,' presents a number of leading 20th century philosophical figures (from Bergson and Canguilhem to Simondon, Dagognet or Ellul) and intellectual movements (from Personalism to French Cybernetics and political ecology) that help shape philosophy of technology in the Francophone area, and feed into contemporary debates (ecology of technology, politics of technology, game studies). The second section, 'Coining and Reconfiguring Technoscience,' traces the genealogy of this controversial concept and discusses its meanings and relevance. A third section, 'Revisiting Anthropological Categories,' focuses on the relationships of technology with the natural and the human worlds from various perspectives that include anthropotechnology, Anthropocene, technological and vital norms and temporalities. The final section, 'Innovating in Ethics, Design and Aesthetics,' brings together contributions that draw on various French traditions to afford fresh insights on ethics of technology, philosophy of design, techno-aesthetics and digital studies. The contributions in this volume are vivid and rich in original approaches that can spur exchanges and debates with other philosophical traditions. 

Sacha Loeve is Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University Lyon 3 Jean Moulin, where he teaches philosophy and history of science and technology. His main research interests are the philosophy of contemporary technoscientific objects (with various fieldwork studies on nanotechnology, synthetic biology, pharmacology, and carbon), the history of technology as a mode of knowledge, the philosophy of Gilbert Simondon, and the role of humanities in engineering and technology.
Xavier Guchet is Professor of Philosophy and Ethics of Technology at the University of Technology Compiègne. As a researcher, he is interested in bridging epistemological and ethical issues related to converging technology (nanobiotechnology) and personalized genomic medicine. He wrote four books on evolutionary approaches to technology (2005), on French philosopher of technology Gilbert Simondon (2010) on nanotechnology (2014), and on personalized medicine (2016).

Bernadette Bensaude-Vincent is Emeritus Professor of Philosophy and History of Science at the university Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne. Her research interests span from the philosophy of chemical technologies to nano and biotechnologies. She has extensively published on materials, technoscience and synthetic biology.
