As part of my study curriculum I have followed a course on ‘philosophy of technology’. In this course, the role of technology in a social-cultural context is discussed. We had to analyse a product or technological development through the eyes of some of the most influential philosophers of technology.
I decided to choose for a service connected to soccer, one of my passions. Already for years, there is a discussion going on about goal line technology. In my essay, I discuss (the role of) goal line technology on the basis of several quotes from professional players and directors, pertinent to the vision of philosophers like Heidegger, Jaspers, Borgmann, Ihde and Latour. If you are interested, you can contact me and I’ll translate the paper for you (since it originally was written in Dutch) or I can send the Dutch version.
