The view that technology is created for specific social structures and cultural values that occur in society
the view that human action is responsible
for creating technology in order to satisfy the values and beliefs of society.
the view that technology was created for a purpose but is now being used as a means to satisfy other needs in society and not just the original purpose for which is was created for.
this is when a problem in society becomes exaggerated and therefore leads to individuals becoming fearful or angry over threats to social order.
