IMPACT OF TECHNOLOGY ON HUMAN LIFE CHAPTER I INTRODUCTION A. Background We know that in fact since the first human technology is already there or already using the technology. Someone is using technology for rational human beings. With his mind he wanted to get out of trouble, wants to live better, safer, and so on. Technological developments occur because a person uses his wits and his wits to solve any problems. On the one hand, the development of world science and technology is so amazing that it has brought tremendous benefits to the advancement of human civilization. The types of work that had previously demanded considerable physical abilities, are now comparatively device can be replaced by automated machines, Similarly, the discovery of new formulations of computer capacity, as has been able to shift the position of the human brain's ability in various fields of science and human activity . In short the progress of science and technology that we have achieved today has really been recognized and felt to give a lot of convenience and comfort for human life. Contribution of science and technology on civilization and human welfare can not be denied. But humans are not kidding myself to the fact that science and technology wreak havoc and misery for mankind. Even if the technology is capable of revealing all the secret veil of nature and life, does not mean the technology is synonymous with truth. Because science and technology is only capable of displaying true. Human truth must be more than just objective reality. Truth must also include an element of justice. Of course science does not recognize moral humanity, because science can never be a standard of truth or the solution of human problems. B. B. formulation of the problem Base of the above background, it is the formulation of the problem in writing this paper is: What is the impact of technology on human life? CHAPTER II DESCRIPTION According to Iskandar Alisyahbana (1980) Technology has been known to humans since millions of years ago because of the encouragement to live a more comfortable, more prosperous and more prosperous. So since the beginning of civilization in fact had no technology, although the term "technology has not been used. The term "technology" comes from "techne" or the way and "logos" or knowledge. So the technology literally means the knowledge of the way. Understanding of the technology itself is a way of doing things according to human needs with the help of reason and tools, so that seemed to extend, strengthen or make more powerful members of the body, senses and the human brain. Meanwhile, according to Jacques Ellul (1967: xxv 1967) gives the meaning of technology as a "whole method is rational leads and has a characteristic efficiency in every sphere of human activity". Understanding technology in general is: a. processes that increase the value-added b. products used and produced to facilitate and improve performance c. Structure or system in which the process and the product was developed and used While the impact is a result brought about by something. So the impact of technology is the result generated by a technology, it could also be due to either bad consequences in human life. Advances in technology is something that we can not avoid in this life, because of advances in technology will run in accordance with kemajuanm science. Each innovation was created to provide positive benefits to human life. Provides many facilities, as well as new ways of doing human activities. Specialized in the field of community technology already enjoy many benefits brought by the innovations that have been produced in the last decade. However, although initially created to generate positive benefits, on the other hand it also also allows the used to the negative. Therefore, in this paper we make an impact, positive and negative impacts of technological advances in human life.
