This book packs up the question of a science named “techno-logy”, a science of assistance allowing us to conceive its foundations,forms and issues. Its title Bigelow harks back to Jacob’s elements of Technology (1829), a collection of lectures given at Harvard. Bigelow support technique en liaison between science and in which science focuses on technical applications and in which techniques (“useful arts”) feed on scientific advances. We have inherited such a définition technique of which is seen as a neutral, transparentes mechanical and application of Science and thus masked by it. It is precisely this paradigm which we intend to question in this book by sketching the outlines of a technology thought as a science of l’aide. We think we can develop a scientific knowledge of assistance without limiting the latter to a mere application of Science. We are sure that the introduction of a “techno-logy redesigning” can contribute to the type of education given in engineering universities, placing at its core a true science of assistance encompassing Design, l’Innovation and creativity aiso, the exercise of a critical design of l’aide. Several French researchers from different disciplines have been invited to contribute to this book which is for us the beginning of a dialogue with our English-speaking academic counterparts and a manner of contributing to the distribution of works illustrating a French tradition of reflection on technology.
