ROSA, Geraldo Antônio da  y  TREVISAN, Amarildo Luiz. Philosophy of technology and education: Conservation or innovative critique of modernity?. Avaliação (Campinas) [online]. 2016, vol.21, n.3, pp.719-738. ISSN 1414-4077.

The field of studies about science and technology and its benefits in the lives of the people have been vehemently questioned in recent times. The justification that the development of science and technology advances inexorably and neutrally fell apart in front of the numerous confrontations and limits that was exposed this rationality. There are many testimonies and even theoretical movements that challenge this belief today. In this text, there is the intention to define some theoretical and conceptual frameworks in which ones these proposals have been develop in terms of their relation to education. For this, it starts from the discussion, proposed by Marilena Chauí, about how modern rationality is constituted and its form of appropriation by the people through the scientism ideology. Following, the criticism of this rationality is assessed according to the precepts of the Frankfurt School, especially under the view of Marcuse and Feenberg. Finally, it has been trying to present some fundamentals of the Science, Technology and Society studies (ST& S) on these issues, deriving reflections to the field of education. It comes to advance the discussion of its origins, as discussed in Heidegger's philosophy of technology, which it is believed to be the fate of humanity, living under the aegis of the technique, in search of a different relationship with reality, more in harmony with nature.
