Jacques Ellul and Junger
Ellul: Technological system
There are eras in technology: there is evolution, as in technology is self-moving, it is a feedback
system
It processes, ‘how’, evaluates how it does something
It learns from itself and collects its own data
Technology is no longer just about producing products, but producing data
Technology is self-perpetuating
Feedback loop
Technological system: Object, environment, total system
Richard/tank inspector: Zapparoni’s factory
Main feature of technology as a system is that it is integrating and integrated, there is a
structuring, system, relationships, the pieces have impacts on one another
Any one piece changes, then the whole changes
The pieces will adapt if one piece changes, as opposed to the whole system going down if one
piece changes
It is an integrating system that takes other things and integrates it into itself
The family itself is then integrated into technology
The glass bees points towards this
You begin with someone outside the system, then he is slowly integrated into the system
despite protesting
You could say all these eras occur in an enframing (Heidegger)
The automatons are about the idea of integration in the novel
Technology takes away our humanity, yet it comforts us
P. 112: real technological society, project reality, not a utopian future
Science fiction can highlight the technological world and give insight into the present situation
Ellul: Aspects of ‘real technological society’: system
Creativity + non-conformity are essential for technological progress
