Samuel Asuquo Ekanem

Technology as a human competence is undergoing a rapid, unprecedented and accelerating period of evolutionary growth, especially in the key foundational areas of nanotechnology, biotechnology, robotics, information and communications technology and applied cognitive science [6]. It is this influence or impact of technology on man and society that has raised the critical question Is man in control of technology or is technology in control of man This has brought about a dialectics, which will be examined in this paper. It is also the position of this paper that technology is part of human culture and that it promotes social transformation.
