We live in two worlds, an objective world of facts and a lived world in which we are actively engaged with things. These two worlds cannot be resolved into a single reality, but they constantly communicate. In this talk I will discuss the interactions between them that shape science and technology.

Andrew Feenberg is Professor Emeritus at the School of Communication, Simon Fraser University, where he directed the Applied Communication and Technology Lab. He served as Directeur de Programme at the Collège International de Philosophie in Paris from 2013-2019. His books include Questioning Technology, Transforming Technology, Heidegger and Marcuse, Between Reason and Experience, The Philosophy of Praxis, and Technosystem: The Social Life of Reason. His forthcoming book on Herbert Marcuse will appear with Verso this year.
