The industrial revolution was defined by the phenomenon of the application of systematically acquired knowledgeof thermodynamics to the improvement of production methodsthe steam engine. The implications of this lay,decisively, in opening the area of knowledge of production methods, in general, to human enquiry. This was giventhe refurbished name of technology, and accorded a central role in the dialectics of capitalism. Later, the 1931Interntational Conference on the History of Science and Technology formulated key ideas in the dialectics oftechnology. This groundwork laid the basis for substantial advances in the history of technology in the subsequentyears.However, inadequate theoretical elaboration of the institutional forms in which technological knowledge iscommercialised has created the space for the growth of arcane theories of technology, which attribute to it amalignant agency. The emotive appeal of these theories is indicative of the reality: the results of the post-1945scientific and technological revolution are expressed in forms structured by a transnational-dominated worldeconomy.
