    Excellent survey of technological advance across the past few centuries, with a bit of an emphasis on ideologies of technology Similar, in this sense, to Adas Machines as the Measure of Men Science, Technology, and Ideologies of Western Dominance Still, I really didn t like the use of the term hybrid Hybrids were sometimes people who saw the positive and the negative elements of technology, and sometimes people with multidisciplinary backgrounds The book seemed generally to valorize technological skeptics, but the hybrid terminology seemed to be thrown around a bit indiscriminately.Still, this was a good read, and the bibliography was extremely useful.
