Abstract

Marc de Vries' latest book, Teaching about Technology: An Introduction to the Philosophy of Technology for Non-Philosophers, was interesting to the reviewer because it provided a link between philosophies of technology and the nature of the technology curriculum more than any other philosophy-related work he has read. The book is intended for use with pre-service teachers, graduate students, and others who are interested in teaching technology. Teaching about Technology is part of a series of books on science and technology that is edited by William Cobern of Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, Michigan. The editorial board for the series is comprised of university professors from around the world including Ghana, South Africa, Columbia, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. The series, entitled Science and Technology Education Library, is primarily related to science education. The publisher, Springer, is based in Berlin, Germany but has a number of publication outlets around the world and is involved in science and technology related publications generally.
