Abstract

Peter-Paul Verbeek views his book Moralizing Technology: Understanding and designing the morality of things as the beginning of a third turn in the history of modern philosophy of technology. Those who are familiar with Verbeek's philosophy would find it a sequel to his earlier book What Things Do. It was during the last decades of the nineteenth century and the first decades of the twentieth century that philosophizing about technology started to turn from historically incoherent notes into an independent field with its own original questions.
