Springer is one of the most influential science and technology publishing houses in the world. The book series of Philosophy of Engineering and Technology (editor-in-chief: Pieter Vermaas) published by Springer provides the multifaceted and rapidly growing discipline of philosophy of technology with a central overarching and integrative platform. Chinese Philosophy of Technology: Classical Readings and Contemporary Work is the first book in the series that systematically introduces research achievements of philosophy of technology with Chinese characteristics. Previous research achievements of philosophy of technology are mostly based on research prospective of Western academia. However, this book has laid a solid foundation for building a discipline system, an academic system and a discourse system with Chinese characteristics in philosophy of technology.
