More Detail


This paper is dedicated to the philosophical analysis of creating an integral worldwide built environment, resulting from technology development. The aim of the research is to define the built environment’s self-sufficiency degree and manageability of this technological reality. The study reveals the technology’s place in the ecocentric worldview and presents an anthropological measurement of technology during its integration into the built environment. Using the system-structure and functional analysis the authors examine the search for the philosophical definition of technology is inextricably associated with the search for its essence and implies an adequate reflection of this essence: firstly, as an instrument of labor, with the help whereof natural objects are transformed; secondly, as a complex of artificial systems, facilitating natural ecosystems transformation; thirdly, as a culture integrating element, defining a civilization’s development level.
