Techné: Research in Philosophy and Technology
Techné publishes peer-reviewed scholarship devoted to the philosophical analysis of technological systems and reflections on the art, craft, science and engineering of making things and getting things done in the world. It is not partial to any philosophical tradition and encourages submissions from philosophers in all fields.
Submissions are expected to constitute original work. If an article has already been published in another journal, it would not be considered acceptable to publish it again in Techné.
