Stories of Human Autonomy, Law, and Technology
Tranter, Kieran
Bulletin of Science, Technology & Society, v30 n1 p18-21 2010
Considering the relationship between human autonomy, law and technology has deep origins. Both technology studies and legal theory tell origin stories about human autonomy as the prize from either a foundational technological or jurisprudential event. In these narratives either law is considered a second order consequence of technology or technology is revealed as a second order consequence of law. In the alternative what is suggested is a foundation story drawing upon human autonomy as human responsibility for law and technology and for the stories told about them.
