Charity in a Technological Society: From Alms to Corporation
Foltz, Franz; Foltz, Frederick
Bulletin of Science, Technology & Society, v30 n2 p96-102 2010
Over the past 2,000 years, the concept of charity has moved from the personal care of the poor mandated by religious conviction to a multibillion dollar business. The culture of technological efficiency helped create this transformation. The authors explore the origins of charity and show how technology has drastically altered its form and function. (Contains 1 table, 1 figure, and 4 notes.)
