Poiesis and Praxis 1 (4):263-273 (2003)
In public opinion, as represented by everyday speech, the relationship between technology and culture is characterized by mutual exclusion. The argument against that stance is made in two steps: (1) technology as a result of goal-oriented rational action is a constitutive part of culture; (2) cultural development can be described through an action theoretical model of technological development. Thus, technology being of the form of culture comes to be the reason for culture being of the form of technology
