Everyday Life and Technoscience
Edvardas RIMKUS

The object of the current research is the relationship between everyday life and the reality revealed by contemporary science and technology. Everyday life is defined as a field of usual, routine meanings and actions, on the basis of which stable social-linguistic world, i.e. intersubjective communicational space is being created and functions. As far as science in the broadest sense (not excluding philosophy and technical sciences or engineering) transcends common understanding, it becomes not mundane. Contemporary science is interwined with various technological processes, therefore it can be called “technoscience”. Scientists often create such theories and/or hypotheses which are not compatible with common sense and daily views of the world. The reality revealed by technoscience is available only to a small expert group of science and technology. Although the theories of technoscience are not an integral part of everyday life, a constant transformation of everyday life takes place on their basis. Technoscience transforms everyday life only quantitatively by expanding the space of daily routine practices and usual conceptions of various phenomena, but not qualitatively: everyday life remains an autonomous social-linguistic space where only a massive, not deeply reflective (a superficial) understanding of various phenomena functions.

Keywords: everyday life, technology, science, epistemology, common sense, philosophy of technology, philosophy of science
