This book presents an entirely new way of understanding technology, as the successor to the dominant ideologies that have underpinned the thought and practices of the Western world. Like the preceding ideologies of Deity, State and Market, technology displays the features of a modern myth, promising to deal with our existential concerns on condition of our subjection to them. Utilising robust empirical evidence, Lyria Bennett Moses and David Grant argue that the pathway out of this mythological maze is the production of means to establish a new sense of political, corporate and personal self-responsibility.

Chapter 2 elaborates the dynamic of the mythological trajectory. It explains how Deity, State and Market were, in turn, each imagined as absolute then slowly engaged to be sympathetic, on condition of individual subjection. It explains how the archetypally fearsome status of each magnitude is degraded by this engagement, leading to the search for a replacement magnitude. By this series, the trajectory has been created. Given the failure of the archetypal Market, the chapter concludes by presenting a detailed explanation of the contemporary emergence of Technology as the means by which the latest element of the trajectory, the idea of the Absolute Subject, is being created.

Chapter 3 provides a further argument in support of the existence and nature of this trajectory by demonstrating that each of the magnitudes has, in turn, subjected science – a traditional companion of technology – as a means to establish its own status. That is, that science itself has been distorted by the serially dominant notions of Deity, State, Market and is now being similarly distorted by the promises of Technology: Technology makes science subject to its mythological imperatives. This argument is also taken as an affirmation that the notion of serial magnitudes, that is, of the trajectory, is robust.
