Description

An examination of whether the concept of politics as found in Machiavelli and Hobbes has become obsolete in the face of the modern proposition that technology is now the engine of society, a development that has left politics emptied of its rational purpose and practical significance.

Mesthene, Hasan Ozbekhan, Frederick L. Polak, Lord Ritchie-Calder, Theodore Roszak, and Nathan Rotenstreich. Technological Society I. Dec. 1965.
