Wajcman, Addressing Technological ChangeEdit

Wajcman sees the marriage of society and technology as interdependent, and criticizes technological determinism for not understanding the compromise that takes place in the relationship. When compared to Winner’s argument, which reasons that society should wield technology and that technology and society are basically one, Wajcman’s stance is assumed. For example, Winner suggested that we have used technology to create a new society, meaning technology responds to society, but Winner also stated that technology affects interpersonal relationships.
