DCD 100 - Technology and Humanity (3 credits)

Technologies play a central role in our culture, in the decisions we make, in our social relationships, in our health, in our safety, in conflict resolution, in the careers we pursue, in the way we work, play, and live. Given this, part of what it means to be human is to be a user of technology. Gaining a clearer and more well-articulated understanding of the moral and social-political implications of technologies thus allows for a more considered view of our place in the world and our progress as a human civilization (scientifically, ethically, and socially). The course considers technologies from different human perspectives. F, S.
