    Do Artifacts Have Politics?Langdon Winner - 1980 - Daedalus 109 (1):121--136.
    In controversies about technology and society, there is no idea more pro vocative than the notion that technical things have political qualities. At issue is the claim that the machines, structures, and systems of modern material culture can be accurately judged not only for their contributions of efficiency and pro-ductivity, not merely for their positive and negative environmental side effects, but also for the ways in which they can embody specific forms of power and authority. Since ideas of this kind (...)

    Citizen Virtues in a Technological Order.Langdon Winner - 1992 - Inquiry: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Philosophy 35 (3-4):341 – 361.
    Contemporary philosophical discussions about technology mirror a profound distance between technical practice and moral thought. I consider the origins of this gap as reflected in both ancient and modern writings. The philosopher's version of technocracy ? rushing forward with the analysis of moral categories in the hope that policy?makers or the public will find them decisive ? does nothing to bridge this gap and is, therefore, a forlorn strategy. The trouble is not that we lack good arguments and theories, but (...)

    Rebranding the Anthropocene.Langdon Winner - 2017 - Techné: Research in Philosophy and Technology 21 (2/3):282-294.
    Recent attempts to rename the geological epoch in which we live, now called the “Holocene,” have produced a number of impressive suggestions. Among these the leading contender at present is the “Anthropocene.” Despite its possible advantages, there are a number of reasons why this term is ultimately misleading and unhelpful in both philosophical and policy deliberations. Especially off-putting is the word’s tendency to identify the human species as a whole as the culprit in controversial changes in Earth’s biosphere whose proximate (...)

    The romanticization of the personal computer as a social panacea threatens to blind society to the fact that without guiding wisdom even the best tool can be misused.

    A lo largo de la historia del desarrollo tecnológico en los Estados Unidos, se ha constatado la creencia persistente en que existe una relación entre el avance de la tecnología y un tipo de ideal político, a saber, la convicción de que los nuevos artefactos técnicos revitalizarán la sociedad democrática al aumentar la participación ciudadana y la calidad de esta participación, dotando a los ciudadanos de nuevos y más extendidos recursos políticos y económicos que los capacitan para el autogobierno.

    Technological Investigations.Langdon Winner - 2018 - Techné: Research in Philosophy and Technology 22 (3):296-313.
    Although Ludwig Wittgenstein did not offer a fully developed philosophy of technology, his writings contain an approach to inquiry that can be employed to explore situations in which people contend with technological devices and systems. His notions of ‘language games’ and ‘forms of life’ as well as the dramatic, imaginary dialogues in his later writings offer ways to transcend the sometimes rigid theoretical frameworks in contemporary technology studies. Especially as applied to rapidly moving infusions of computing and digital electronics in (...)
