Goldberg, Maxwell H., Ed.
In the first of four sections of this publication, James H. Stone reviews recent writings on the humanities, citing 299 books, essays, and articles. In the second section, Maxwell H. Goldberg provides definitions of several of the central terms related to technological change and human values (e.g., "science,""technology,""cybernetics,""cybernation," and "human values") and discusses the present and future impact of technological change on society. In the third section, an assortment of opinions collected, by Alan J. Trachtenberg and others, as a sampling of contemporary responses to a changing world are presented. Major topics of opinions are "technology as threat or promise,""the pattern of the working day,""the shape of the community," and "the nature of the good life." Concluding the volume is a bibliography of over 90 pages on technological change, human values, and the humanities. General divisions under which items are grouped are "Background and Context,""Impacts and Implications," and "Further Resources." (LH)
