This quantity is a significant try and open up the topic of eu philosophy of technology to actual suggestion, and supply the structural foundation for the interdisciplinary improvement of its professional fields, but additionally to impress mirrored image at the suggestion of ‘European philosophy of science’. This efforts may still foster a contemporaneous mirrored image on what may be intended via philosophy of technological know-how in Europe and eu philosophy of technological know-how, and the way in reality knowledge of it might probably support philosophers interpret and inspire their study via a more robust collective identification. The overarching goal is to set the history for a collaborative venture setting up, systematising, and eventually forging an id for, eu philosophy of technological know-how via developing examine constructions and constructing examine networks throughout Europe to advertise its development.
