Abstract

The essay explores the use of technology in politics, focusing on government duties. After a brief excursus to highlight how the issue has a long history, the paper considers the relationship between technique and politics and how it has influenced our form of government. The thread running through the entire investigation starts from the consideration that between the two components – technical and political – there is not a priori a relationship of conflict or challenge, but that today, as in the past, we cannot ignore the relationship between the two dimensions that has always existed and that today more than ever must be developed constructively, given that it would be unimaginable that the public decision-making process could take place without the necessary technical skills that must in any case be governed politically. This is because technical knowledge, as a specialist, is ontologically fractional and needs to be framed within a broader project that defines its ultimate goals. The study concludes that technical expertise has not only cognitive, but also ethical and political implications that must therefore be embedded in a political project that has defined its objectives.
