Research in Philosophy and Technology


This volume of "Research in Philosophy and Technology" is guest edited by Marina Banchetti-Robino in association with Don E. Marietta Jr. and Lester Embree. In her introduction to the 10 major theme papers that deal with "Philosophies of the Environment and Technology", Banchetti-Robino gives an account of the origin of this original collection, of the importance of the theme, and of the interrelated arguments advanced relative to the theme. This set of papers by a number of well-known figures in philosophical studies both on the environment and on technology - namely J. Baird Callicott, Don Ihde, Larry Hickman, Don E. Marietta Jr., Lester Embree, Frederick Ferre, and Holmes Rolston III - together with a few younger scholars - Tim Casey, Marina Banchetti-Robino and Robert Frodeman - opens new pathways in both environmental philosophy and the philosophy of technology.
