Public Question: What did the old theorists think about technology?

A while back I asked “does anyone know if there is a good paper or book about what Weber thought about technology?” which is an interesting question in light of new STS work. Marx has been paid some attention by scholars, but here comes the public question:

Is there a book that tackles, one chapter at a time, what the old theorists thought about technology?

This seems like a great edited book or mini-conference or mini-conference that turns into a great edited book.

So, next question:

Is there any interest in a book that tackles, one chapter at a time, what the old theorists thought about technology?

  1. ahahahaha — Right, please read "old theorists" as "old, mainly long dead, sociologists" — my fault. Of course, Simmel, Merton, Parsons, Durkheim, Weber, etc..And, agreed: keep Heidie at a distance.
