From the cover: “The physical dependence of man on his tools and the extent to which they condition his mental outlook, individually and collectively, is already very great and is certain to increase sharply with the further development of automation and automatic data processing. To examine critically this manifold interaction between man and machine is the main purpose of this book. It contends that, in spite of spectacular technical achievements, modern western civilization is basically empty and aimless and that, although we certainly can make some very complex machines, we are largely ignorant about applying them for the true benefit of mankind.
