BBC: The Digital Human Podcast
BBC podcast, "The Digital Human," discussed how the Amish evaluate the need for and use of technologies, with the episode featuring SUNY Poly College of Arts & Sciences Dean Andrew Russell.
Dean Russell said, “I think there’s a lot of different inspiration we can draw from different communities who have taken a cautious and skeptical approach to technologies. It’s interesting to me that even though there is persistence of groups that resist or think about new technologies skeptically, they’re cast as backwards. And that’s because modernity has gotten so intertwined with the notion of technology. It just seems out of step with the basic tenets of modern life to resist these things.”
