Technology and life

Adam Briggle, professor of philosophy, co-edited The Good Life in a Technological Age (Routledge) with Phillip Brey and Edward Spence, examining how new media influences the quality of life and how technology relates to human well-being.
Contributing essays from UNT's Department of Philosophy and Religion Studies are faculty J. Britt Holbrook, David Kaplan and Robert Frodeman and master's student and teaching fellow Kelli Barr.
"To me, the question of whether we — or only some of us — are living better or worse lives than our grandparents lived is of utmost practical and theoretical importance," Briggle says. "We seem so convinced we are progressing, but what, really, does it mean to live well?"
