Hans Jonas on Technology - Dictionary of Arguments

Brocker I 612
Technology/Jonas/Brocker: Ultimately, Jonas does not develop precise criteria for how a technology is to be applied, but leaves it at the question of "whether at all": according to Jonas, the mere possibility that a technology could pose a threat to the biosphere is obviously sufficient to prohibit it. (1) See also Ethics/Jonas, Democracy/Jonas.
BrockerVsJonas: a deliberative democracy ((s) against which Jonas is also opposed) would be best able to come to terms with the ambivalences of technology.
Brocker I 619
BrockerVsJonas: Contradiction: if we have to slow down our technology according to Jonas (1), for example to reduce the emission of harmful climate gases, we would have to expand our technology at the same time, in order to protect humanity, for example, against comet impacts that threaten the population of our species in the same way.
