GUZON NESTAR, José Luis. Techno-science and consilience as an agenda for the philosophy of technology. Sophia [online]. 2020, n.28, pp.93-116. ISSN 1390-8626.

The article addresses a novel topic that has recently had very diverse treatments. Some of its objectives could be the following: it aims to point out some of the paths taken in the dialogue between science and technology over the last few decades and briefly describe the milestones that have led from classical (Newtonian) science to current techno-science. In the background, also offer a few brushstrokes on the new philosophy of technology, which is built apart from old humanist prejudices, which has the theoretical development of consilience and does not want to be directed primarily or exclusively towards engineering. In short, a philosophy of technique with a new ‘agenda’. The work has large blocks: the first describes the project of techno-science in its historical perspective. In a second moment, the aim is to situate technique in the history of sciences and techniques. The third part deals with the possibility (and also the need) for a new vision of these subjects, which has been called a sapiential and transdisciplinary vision. Finally, in the fourth part, some steps are being taken in the field of technical philosophy under this new perspective, which could be considered as conclusions, the new ‘agenda’: the emergence of ethical approaches (among others, that of responsibility) and new visions of science-technology-society.
