From mechanical arts to the philosophy of technology
In this paper, I reconstruct some of the key steps which characterise the way in which technology has been considered and studied since the times of ancient Greece. Within this reconstruction, I will highlight the evolution of the mechanical arts into the predominant technology which took centre stage during the First Industrial Revolution. The further step of the alliance between technology and science is also considered.
