This volume details the philosophical propositions of technology, illustrates its impact on various facets of social life, and demonstrates how the disruptive effects of technology can be reduced by providing it with a new philosophical base. Philosophical principles that will help to foster the responsible use of technology are developed. The contributors deal specifically with the ways in which technology shapes a person's view of politics, capital punishment, education, health and illness, work, communications, and the human body. They argue that technology tends to deanimate these aspects of life, thereby purging society of its creativity and spontaneity. Collectively, they suggest ways in which this trend can be reversed by the creation of a socially responsible technology.

Critical Heuristics of Social Planning has been recognised as theseminal work on critical systems thinking. Ulrich offers a newapproach both to practical philosophy (which has until now remainedrather unpractical) and to systems thinking (which has reduced thesystems idea to a tool of merely instrumental, rather thanpractical, reason). Critical systems heuristics (CSH), as theapproach is now generally called, provides planners, practitionersand policy makers with a conceptual tool for practising practicalreason. It will enable them to identify and discuss systematicallythe value implications of policies, plans, problem definitions, orprogram evaluations. In addition, the book offers the mostthorough-going introduction available today to the espistemologicalfoundations of critical systems thinking, including a practicablemodel of cogent argumentation on disputed value implications ofdesigns. A must for practitioners and scholars who are interestedin a self-critical and practicable understanding of the widespreadcall for holistic or systems thinking! "Critical Heuristics will be recognised as a very important bookin the emerging systems discipline and will hold a significantposition for many years to come". Peter B. Checkland, University ofLancaster, England. "An outstanding contribution to an adequate philosophical andheuristic framework for critical social inquiry and design". C.West Churchman, University of California, Berkeley, USA. "The book fills a major gap in the literature on the systemstradition". Michael C. Jackson, University of Hull, England. "Drawing on a profound knowledge of both Anglo?American systemstheory and German practical philosophy, this book belongs to thebest studies I have seen on the normative foundations of planningand systems design." Horst Steinmann, University ofErlangen-Nuremberg, Germany. "Mandatory for libraries in the field of planning". JohnFriedmann, University of California, Los Angeles, USA.
