Philosophy of Science, Technology and Society (STS) is an emerging field of Philosophy which tries to investigate the role of science and technology in society. It does so by examining the technological culture we live in, by investigating individual technologies or by studying the history of science, technology and society.
Science and technology have influenced society and the possibilities and phenomenal experiences of individuals greatly ever since the Industrial Revolution. This is what has created the technological culture we live in.
Investigations such as those undertaken by the Frenchman Bruno Latour, try to achieve a better understanding of how technologies are developed (the construction of a black box), which may be useful in for instance technology assessment. This branch of the philosophy of technology is closely related to sociology.
Many useful resources about these and closely related topics can be found in the category Science/Science_in_Society.
