Novelty and Technological Objects
- 107 Downloads
This study is about novelty and technological objects. It is about the unfolding and revealing of what was not there before, and how the new individuates and enters a technical form. Technology is an ambiguous term in this regard: on the one hand, stability, repetition, and predictability characterize technology, and, on the other hand, technology challenges order, as it is poietic. The striving for stability reflects the former meaning of technology as a stabilized set of relations that repetitively produces expected results.
