Human Centred Systems: Foundational Concepts and Traditions

  • Karamjit Gill


Human centredness is a new technological tradition which places human need, skill, creativity and potentiality at the centre of the activities of technological systems. It is an emancipatory tradition, which is rooted in the diversity of European cultural, scientific and philosophical traditions. Human centredness is not anti-technology or anti-science, but a tradition that transcends narrow mechanistic notions of science and technology (i.e. statistical control, objectivity, quantification), and crosses the boundaries of academic and working life disciplines.
