In Technics and Human Development, the first of his two-volume series The Myth of the Machine, Lewis Mumford explains the forces that have shaped technology since prehistoric times and have played an increasing role in shaping modern man.


Mumford travels back to the origins of human culture, but rather than accept the view that man's rise was the result of his command of tools and conquest of nature the author demonstrates how tools did not and could not develop far without a series of moresignificant invention in ritual, language, and social organization. This is but one of Mumford's radical reinterpretations if the developmentof early man - from of complex mechanisms in the Middle Ages- that have cast a new light on the totalitariantechnology of the modern age.
