    The Art of Living with Technology: Turning Over Philosophy of Technology’s Empirical Turn.Yoni Van Den Eede, Gert Goeminne & Marc Van den Bossche - 2017 - Foundations of Science 22 (2):235-246.
    In this article we seek to lay bare a couple of potential conceptual and methodological issues that, we believe, are implicitly present in contemporary philosophy of technology. At stake are the sustained pertinence of and need for coping strategies as to ‘how to live with technology ’ notwithstanding PhilTech’s advancement in its non-essentialist analysis of ‘technology’ as such; the issue of whether ‘living with technology’ is a technological affair or not ; and the tightly related question concerning the status of (...)

    Postphenomenology and the Politics of Sustainable Technology.Gert Goeminne - 2011 - Foundations of Science 16 (2-3):173-194.
    In this paper I argue that Don Ihde’s ‘postphenomenology’ may constitute a proper access to the question concerning sustainable technology and I do so in three steps. First, I lay bare how a modern framework that systematically separates facts and instruments from values, choices and responsibilities yields no space for engaged decisions and responsible action towards more sustainable societies. In a second step, I elaborate how postphenomenology’s ‘in-between’ perspective opens up the possibility of questioning science and technology as an inherent (...)

    Science, Technology, and the Political: The Possibility of Democratic Rationalization.Gert Goeminne - 2013 - Techné: Research in Philosophy and Technology 17 (1):93-123.
    In this paper, I elaborate on the very political dimension of epistemology that is opened up by the radical change of focus initiated by constructivism: from science as knowledge to science as practice. In a first step, this brings me to claim that science is political in its own right, thereby drawing on Mouffe and Laclau’s framework of radical democracy and its central notion of antagonism to make explicit what is meant by ‘the political.’ Secondly, I begin to explore what (...)

  4. Climate Policy is Dead, Long Live Climate Politics!Gert Goeminne - 2010 - Ethics, Policy and Environment 13 (2):207-214.
    In this commentary, the author argues that the alleged failure of the Copenhagen climate summit in December 2009, and in particular the role played by the developing countries, should be embraced as a political accomplishment opening up a moment of political opportunity. Admittedly Copenhagen was a political failure, albeit of a populist consensual policy practice that invokes the semi-scientific threat of an apocalyptic doomsday scenario to make everybody toe the line of the neo-liberal market economy. Now that we are at (...)

    Who is Afraid of the Political? A Response to Robert Scharff and Michel Puech.Gert Goeminne - 2013 - Foundations of Science 18 (2):355-360.
    In their respective commentaries to my article “Postphenomenology and the Politics of Sustainable Technology” both Robert Scharff and Michel Puech take issue with my postphenomenological inroad into the politics of technology. In a first step I try to accommodate the suggestions and objections raised by Scharff by making my account of the political more explicit. Consequently, I argue how an antagonistic relational conceptualisation of the political allows me to address head on Puech’s plea to leave politics behind and move towards (...)

    When Technology is More Than Instrumental: How Ethical Concerns in EU Agriculture Co-Evolve with the Development of GM Crops.Joost Dessein, Guido Huylenbroeck, Gert Goeminne & Linde Inghelbrecht - 2017 - Agriculture and Human Values 34 (3):543-557.
    Being more than mere passive objects used at human will, technologies co-determine the values and structures that shape the EU agricultural system. Technologies actively shape human interpretation, human action and co-shape our moral standards and routines. It is therefore important to account for the moral significance of agricultural technologies when characterising the structures in place within EU agriculture as well as when trying to understand why a particular agricultural technology is favoured or strongly opposed. From this perspective on technology, an (...)

    Once Upon a Time I Was a Nuclear Physicist: What the Politics of Sustainability Can Learn From the Nuclear Laboratory.Gert Goeminne - 2011 - Perspectives on Science 19 (1):1-31.
    This paper keeps pace with my personal history as a researcher: starting from the eagerness for knowledge of the nuclear physics PhD student I once was, continuing with my search for social relevance in policy-preparatory research I subsequently performed as a sustainability scholar, it finally leads to the topics of interest for the hybrid philosophy-sociology researcher I am today. Following these traces, I first of all rethink my life as a physicist in terms of science as a necessarily situated and (...)

    The Thing Called Environment: What It Is and How to Be Concerned With It.Gert Goeminne & Karen François - 2010 - Oxford Literary Review 32 (1):109-130.
    This paper wants to think beyond the science-politics divide that is omnipresent in sustainability discourse. With Bruno Latour, we investigate if and how decomposing matters of fact and recomposing them back as matters of concern can open up a scientific-political space in which sustainability challenges can be addressed in an adequate manner. By connecting Latour's constructivist account of science in action with Rudolf Boehm's concept of topical truth, we aim to lighten up the normative-political entanglement between science and politics, facts (...)

    On The Need and (Im) Possibility of A Sustainability Science.Gert Goeminne - 2008 - Proceedings of the Xxii World Congress of Philosophy 53:63-72.
    Sustainable development can be regarded as an attempt to bridge the gap between environmental concerns about the increasingly evident ecological consequences of human activities and socio-political concerns about human development issues. The idea that science is not responding adequately to the challenges of our times, and particularly, those posed by the quest for sustainable development is gaining increasing acceptance with scientists and policy-makers. Concurrently, a new kind of science is being called for. ‘Post-normal science’ and ‘Sustainability science’ are, besides others, (...)
