Morality and Technology: The End of Means

Abstract : Technology is always limited to the realm of means while morality is supposed to deal with ends. In this theoretical paper about comparing those two regimes of enunciation, it is argued that technology is on the contrary characterized by the " ends of means " that is the impossibility of being limited to tools ; then, it is possible to relate in a totally different ways to morality which is not about values, but about the exploration of ends.
