Program on Science, Technology and Society at Harvard|
Jan Peter Bergen is a PhD candidate in Philosophy of Technology at Delft University of Technology, and was a visiting fellow at the Harvard STS Program in 2015. His research in Delft is part of a larger project on experimentation with new technologies in society, with him focusing on the role of technological reversibility in responsible experimentation with nuclear energy technologies. In his work, Jan combines insights from sociology, innovation studies and STS, as well as philosophical pragmatism and 20th century phenomenology.
While at Harvard, Jan is developing a phenomenological description of agency, practice, choice, and selection environments in processes of technology development. In doing so, he aims to provide a more rich and compelling foundation for current models explaining technological irreversibility.
