Developing Technologies of Humility


Open Posted By: jamesanderson Date: 14/08/2020 Academic Level: High School Paper Type: Report Writing

 

This week’s Critical Thinking assignment is based in Jasanoff’s  “Technologies of Humility: Citizen Participation in Governing Science,”  one of our readings for this week. Begin your paper by briefly  differentiating between Jasanoff’s “technologies of hubris” and  “technologies of humility.” Then choose a technological development that  has some effect on your personal life or your community (e.g. GMOs,  transportation, the Internet, resource mining, communication, artificial  intelligence, pharmaceutical medicines, etc.). In your paper, follow  Jasanoff’s four focal points to create an assessment of what decision  makers should take into consideration when determining the path for the  development of this technology.

Use the following as a guideline for your assessment and support your  work with specific examples from the text or other research.

  • Framing: Consider the problem this technology  was meant to address. Is it framed properly or are essential elements  left out of consideration? How could the problem be reframed to include  as many relevant elements as possible?
  • Vulnerability: What factors contribute to the  vulnerability of certain populations due to this technology? What  besides humans may be made vulnerable by this technology?
  • Distribution: What structures—social, institutional  or physical—would you suggest putting in place for examining the  distributive consequences of this technology?
  • Learning: Describe any lessons that you think are  to be learned from the current use of this technology. Are there  barriers to this learning being conveyed to decision makers?

Your paper should be well written and meet the following requirements:
