Extraordinary Lives

Steve Talbott


Disability and Destiny in a Technological Age

If technology is an expression of certain valuable but one-sided human capacities, and if this technology in turn reinforces our one-sidedness by encouraging us always to think in technological terms, how then can we escape a circle of positive reinforcement? How do we regain a proper human balance except by resisting the one-sided pull-or except by countering this pull with an opposite movement expressing our highest humanity?

This book, about technology and disabilities is primarily about people, about the way individuals have accepted strokes of destiny as opportunities, as signs directing them toward the distinctive and deeper meaning of their lives.

It can be used as a reader in high school classes and teachers can employ the stories in their own teaching.
