Altern, Gesellschaft, GND, Pflegewissenschaft, Technikfolgenabschätzung


Reflections on the use of technologies in the context of care in a society of longer living cannot be limited to pragmatic aspects of technology development, use or assessment. Instead these issues demand a constitutive discussion over the basic questions of society’s development and provoke debates on the societal way of dealing with age and vulnerability as well as the relationship between effectively and efficiency and care in a modern society. Like under a magnifying glass, questions of the cultural notions of age or societal development as a whole arise through the discourses surrounding care and technology in a society of longer living. The following thematic focus searches for approaches to these questions from perspectives of gerontology, nursing sciences as well as technology assessment.
