Research/Original Article (بدون رتبه معتبر)

Modern technology has brought numerous conveniences to humanity, but it has also had unfortunate consequences. Despite discussions among thinkers about these consequences, little attention has been given to the causes, factors, and relationship between them. This study employs a philosophical ethics approach and references technology theorists to address this gap. From this perspective, modern technology is formed based on worldly meanings and the rule of lust and anger over reason. This cognitive inversion leads to the enslavement of the mind and entire existence of humanity under animality, resulting in identitylessness and the formation of animal character, leading to indescribable human suffering. At the macro level, technology contributes to the destruction of human values, the domination of nature, man, and society, and changes in people's perceptions and ways of thinking. This results in a state of permanent anonymity, cultural captivity, and a secondary identity incompatible with the original human identity. This study uses an analytical and rational method to explore the relationship between the causes and consequences of modern technology and its impact on human values, perceptions, and identity. The findings reveal a hidden contradiction in Western culture and civilization, leading to a shift in how we view modern technology and its role in society. This research contributes to the philosophical ethics approach to understanding modern technology's consequences. It provides insights into the causes and factors of the consequences of modern technology and its impact on humanity, culture, and society. This research has implications for promoting a more humanistic approach to technology and technology development, contributing to a more just and equitable society.
