The Here and Now: Theory, Technology, and Actuality [Book Review]

Philosophy and Technology 24 (1):5-17 (2011)
Abstract
Central figures of American mainstream philosophy have at crucial points in their work been concerned with the concreteness of actual reality, but have in various ways been deflected to primarily technical issues of philosophical analysis. It is possible, however, to see in these concerns a line of inquiry that leads to an examination of what is characteristic of actual reality today and of what is troubling and what is hopeful in it. Technology is a helpful term for the character of contemporary reality, commodification for what is questionable and moments of completeness for what is promising in it
