SPT v1n1n2 - Preface

Numbers 1-2
Fall 1995
Volume 1


Paul T. Durbin, University of Delaware

This inaugural issue has been labeled volume one, numbers 1 and 2, in order to establish a quarterly schedule coinciding with the academic calendar. Issues, when a regular schedule is established, will have September, December, March, and June dates.

For this inaugural double issue, we have chosen two sets of papers.

The first reflects a regular feature of the Society's activities: sessions at American Philosophical Association regional meetings. The symposium papers included here were presented under the title, "Philosophy of Technology after Twenty Years," at the APA Eastern meeting in New York City, December 1995.

The second set of papers are a selection from the desktop-published proceedings of the Seventh International Conference of the Society for Philosophy & Technology. It was held at Peniscola (Valencia), Spain, in May 1993. The proceedings volume, Technology and Ecology , was edited by Larry Hickman and Elizabeth Porter in 1993. The papers chosen for inclusion here were judged to be among the best in the volume and are unified in their focus on the conference theme.
