Technology is the collective term for numerous different human activities and influences. Technological systems are a complex collection of machines and practices used to implement various technological systems. The progress of technology relies heavily on the decisions and actions of those who own, manage, and control the technologies that exist. Technological systems are typically categorized according to the complexity of their design, implementation, and maintenance. This framework can be very broad, but it is useful to break complex technologies down into their most essential elements.
Technology is the science of being able to do things. Schatzberg believed that art and technology were not unrelated concepts, even though the two terms are usually used interchangeably. The twentieth century brought a significant amount of influence from the art and technologies fields, most notably from German artist and philosopher Alfred Schatzberg. Schatzberg believed that art and technology were not independent concepts, even though the two terms are often used interchangeably. The twentieth century brought a significant amount of influence from the art and technologies fields, most notably from German artist and philosopher Alfred Schatzberg.
Technological Systems are the processes by which technological systems are implemented or maintained. According to Schatzberg, technological systems are a system of “efficient ordering” in which “the material world and human action are themselves governed by a number of laws of logic which may be efficiently ordered.” In technical terms, this order can be described as an underlying pattern or structure. In technical terms, this pattern or structure is called a technotechnological structure. According to Schatzberg, a technotechnological system is an ordered sequence of operations that is “designed to satisfy a need, in a given environment,” as defined by a set of standards.
One of the most influential thinkers in the early twentieth century was a thinker and art collector Anna Scholl. In his concept of the Analytic Ego, he distinguished between the conscious mind, which he said was “at the service” of the will, and the unconscious mind, which he said was at the service of the “will.” He believed that there existed a dialect between the conscious and the subconscious mind, a dialect that could be overcome through education. He used the example of Bach, who was said to have created the lute because he was seeking to master the language.
According to Anna Scholl, “The technology of today is so far removed from its origins that it may be called a kind of technophobia.” She continued, “Bach’s achievement may be less a matter of inventive genius than of realizing that what men have been doing for centuries was insufficiently satisfactory.” On the other hand, according to Karl J. Ebert, a technology-based revolution occurred when Henry Ford combined the assembly line and the robot to create a product that could do work unassisted by human labor.
It is clear from the foregoing that there are many areas of twentieth century science and technology in which the analysis of desire conflicts may be useful. But it is also evident that the analysis of desire has not been an independent matter, but rather a convenient device that have served to divide and control society. In fact, the division of human essence in twentieth century society, as pointed out by Max Weber, was not accidental. Rather, it was a product of the process of accumulation and enclosure that took place over the last two centuries. And Weber goes on to state that the process of enclosure and the accumulation of social powers are intimately connected.
