Ernst Kapp’s 1877 Elements of a Philosophy of Technology is nothing less than the emergence of early elements of a cybernetic paradigm. Join us to celebrate a new 2018 edition of this book, translated into English for the first time.

Leif Weatherby (Associate Professor of German, NYU), Jeffrey Kirkwood (Assistant Professor of Art History, Binghamton University) will be joined by Lisa Gitelman (Professor of English and Media, Culture, and Communications, NYU) and John Durham Peters (María Rosa Menocal Professor of English and of Film & Media Studies, Yale University) to discuss this 1877 treatise that coined the phrase “philosophy of technology".
