The machine in the garden : technology and the pastoral ideal in America by Leo Marx( Book )

111 editions published between 1964 and 2000 in 4 languages and held by 2,580 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For over four decades, Leo Marx's work has focused on the relationship between technology and culture in 19th- and 20th-century America. His research helped to define - and continues to enrich - the area of American studies concerned with the links between scientific and technological advances, and the way society and culture both determine these links. The Machine in the Garden fully examines the differences between the "pastoral" and "progressive" ideals that characterized early 19th-century American culture, and which ultimately evolved into the basis for many of the environmental and nuclear debates of contemporary society."--Jacket

Progress : fact or illusion?( Book )

12 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Progress, perhaps the fundamental secular belief of modern Western society, has come under heavy fire recently because, after three centuries, the advances in science and technology seem increasingly to bring problems in their wake: alienation, environmental degradation, the threat of nuclear destruction. The idea of progress is also brought into question by postmodern critique, attacking the notion of science as truth. Yet no other meaningful organization of humankind's sense of time looms on the horizon. Progress: Fact or Illusion? attempts to reassess the meaning and prospects of the idea of progress
