The technological society by Jacques Ellul( Book )

104 editions published between 1954 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 2,405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couverture indique : "La Technique ou l'enjeu du siècle a connu une destinée singulière. Refusé par deux éditeurs, il a finalement été publié dans une collection universitaire à faible tirage et a très vite été épuisé, Jamais réédité (sauf en édition pirate) il n'a cessé d'être lu et pillé, même si ceux qui l'ont utilisé ne l'ont pas toujours cité. Aux Etats-Unis, il est constamment réédité en collection de poche et est inscrit au programme des lectures obligées (text-books) de la plupart des universités. Il a également eu une grande influence chez les dissidents des pays de l'Est. Jacques Ellul n'a cessé d'approfondir sa réflexion sur la technique dans des livres devenus des classiques : Propagandes (1960), L'illusion politique (1963), Le système technicien (1977) et, tout récemment, Le bluff technologique (1987). Mais on ne peut comprendre son œuvre sans de reporter à ce livre fondateur. Prophétiques lorsqu'elles ont été écrites, ses vues sur la technique comme fait central de nos sociétés conservent plus de 35 ans après une étonnante et parfois inquiétante actualité. En 1960, Jacques Ellul avait préparé une deuxième édition revue et complétée qu'un éditeur peu avisé a renoncé à publier. C'est ce texte que les Classiques des sciences sociales offrent aujourd'hui au lecteur."

The technological bluff by Jacques Ellul( Book )

29 editions published between 1988 and 2014 in French and English and held by 1,063 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

M. Ellul's view of technology is that once it is let out of the laboratory, technology cannot be turned off. Technology begets more technology.

8 editions published between 2010 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jacques Ellul (1912-1994) was a French law professor, historian, sociologist, lay theologian, and Christian anarchist. During the Second World War, he was active in the French resistance; his efforts to save Jews during this time eventually earned him the title "Righteous Among the Nations." A towering intellectual figure, Ellul taught in Paris and at the University of Bordeaux, wrote and published extensively, and engaged throughout his career in a dialogue between the realities of technology and contemporary life, the tenets of the Christian faith, and the principles of human freedom. Transcribed here for the first time, this series of talks refines and clarifies some of Ellul's most controversial insights into what it means to understand and live out God's wishes
