On the role of technics in modern civilisation

“To understand the dominating role played by technics in modern civilization, one must explore in detail the preliminary period of ideological and social preparation. Not merely must one explain the existence of the new mechanical instruments: one must explain the culture that was ready to use them and profit by them so extensively.”

Lewis Mumford (1934) in Technics and Civilization
