ABSTRACT

This paper seeks to trace the importance and meaning of the agenda of the 4th Industrial Revolution - with its catch-phrase of promoting ‘people - centered’ plans - from a cultural and philosophical perspective, and explore the cultural conditions for its realization. The existing industrial revolution has continuously facilitated the structure of binary opposition between humans and technology, as a result of which the cultural relationship between humans and technology has been weakened. If not, the 4th Industrial Revolution will deepen the confrontational structure due to the destructive power of its innovative technology, and consequently trigger the phenomena of replacing humans at a tremendous rate. The fundamental solution to the problem is to resolve this conflict and to focus on restoring the cultural relations between technology and human beings.
