Bergson published his last major work The Two Sources of Morality and Religion (1932). This book outlines a basis for a morality that is not restricted to specific regions, cultures or communities. This next chapter gives an account of the relevance of Bergson’s thought for a diagnosis of the present. Rather than seeking to give an account of the history of technology, then the relevance of Bergson’s works for its analysis, to the extrapolate to the present, I have structured this chapter with a specific focus on the nature of the relation between humanity and technology. Bergson’s The Two Sources of Morality and Religion (1932) forms only an introduction to what would become modern philosophy of technology. Seen the relevance of many authors from this field and their direct or indirect relation to Bergson, this chapter will discuss the relation between humanity and technology through the eyes of a broad tradition in philosophy, rather than merely those of Bergson.
