Philosophy has been described as having taken a “computational turn,” referring to the ways in which computers and information technology throw new light upon traditional philosophical issues, provide new tools and concepts for philosophical reasoning, and pose theoretical and practical questions that cannot readily be approached within traditional philosophical by: The aim of this book is to introduce research on ICTs and everyday life primarily to students entering the field and to those developing these technologies and : Leslie Haddon.

From 9/11 to the Snowden leaks, stories about surveillance increasingly dominate the headlines. But surveillance is not only done to us it is something we do in everyday life.

We submit to surveillance, believing we have nothing to hide. Or we try to protect our privacy or negotiate the terms under which others have access to our data. At the same time, we participate in surveillance in order.

Mobile technology has been quickly adopted in everyday life, and it is common for most people to have, and carry, a mobile device with them at all times. Reading the best philosophy books gives us the opportunity to look into those hidden depths and understand our own thinking and behavior at a deeper level, helping us eliminate behavior we don’t like.

Philosophy draws indiscriminately from all fields knowledge, in a never ending questioning. Research philosophy in the ‘research onion’ Each stage of the research process is based on assumptions about the sources and the nature of knowledge.

The society has been dramatically changed with the evolution of technology. Before the advent of modern day technology, life was burdensome and everyday chores consumed too much of our time.

Immense opportunities are being provided by technologies which play an important role in human life. The philosophy of technology is a sub-field of philosophy that studies the nature of technology and its social effects.

Philosophical discussion of questions relating to technology dates back to the very dawn of Western philosophy. The phrase "philosophy of technology" was first used in the late 19th century by German-born philosopher and geographer Ernst Kapp, who published a book titled "Grundlinien einer Philosophie.

Philosopher of technology Don Ihde defines philosophy of technology as philosophy that examines the phenomenon of technology per se, rather than merely considering technology in the context of reflections aimed at philosophical issues other than technology.
