Appropriate Technology: The Poetry of Science

Michael J. Clifford
S & CB 17 (1)
April 2005


The case is made for increased use of appropriate technology to solve pressing engineering challenges from a Christian perspective. The rapid advance of technology and its impact on culture and research priorities are discussed. Appropriate technology is introduced as a practical and ethical alternative to the increasingly complex solutions favoured by many. ‘L’invention n’est-elle pas la poésie de la science?’1 E. M. Bataille ‘The world is very different now. For man holds within his mortal hands the power to destroy all forms of human poverty and the power to destroy all forms of human life.’2 John F. Kennedy
