Social Technology

A new publication setting out the concept of social technology–and whybook cover we need it– has appeared in the Handbook of Philosophy of the Social Sciences. In this chapter entitled Social Technology, the concept is refined and illustrated through the analysis of three ‘cases’: priming, surveys and focus groups, and social software.

A draft of the chapter was discussed at the workshop Social Technology, co-organised with Signe Vikkels√ł (Copenhagen Business School). A special issue from this workshop is forthcoming in the journal Theory and Psychology.
