The Research-Education Nexus of the Philosophy of Technology: A Research-Education-Industry Roadmap for De-marginalization of the Field
Gui Hong Cao

For the philosophy of technology to achieve a bright future, it is necessary to de-marginalize and advance the related research and education. Using qualitative text mining, online surveys, observational studies, discussions and communications, comparison and contrast for research and pedagogy, this paper analyzes the similarities and differences, relationships, and interactions between research and education on this field. As a result, similarities and dissimilarities vary in the research and education on the philosophy of technology. This article initiates an original framework for the interaction of research and education on the philosophy of technology. This paper argues for a sustainable research-education-industry roadmap to de-marginalize and advance the philosophy of technology. Furthermore, this paper proposes three workable approaches of research-led, education-oriented, and application-transformation for endogenous and exogenous growths. Finally, this article advocates shifting the philosophy of technology from the anti-technology tradition to a pro-technology direction by learning by design.
