Technology, broadly defined as the techniques for shaping tools to achieve useful ends, is a powerful force in human civilization. It is, like language, ritual, values, trade, the arts, and commerce, an intrinsic component of a culture and both shapes and reflects that system’s values. However, in the second half of the twentieth century, with the narrowing of the meanings of both ‘arts’ and’sciences’, the term ‘technology’ came to be used in such a limited sense that it was almost devoid of all meaning. Schatzberg’s lucid and persuasive account is an important first step in rehabilitating the concept of technology as a tool for history and social theory.
Technological developments have helped people overcome challenges such as hunger, disease, and isolation. In addition, they have enabled people to communicate with others across great distances. It is no surprise that technologies such as the internet, television, and mobile phones have become essential to modern life.
Many businesses use technology to stay competitive. They create new products and services with the help of this technology. They also use it to deliver those products and services to their customers on time.
Although the development of technology is a complex and slow process, it is important for humans to keep up with current technological advancements. This is because they can provide them with numerous benefits, such as increased productivity and cost savings. It is also important for people to be aware of the negative impacts that technology can have.
