Abstract English

In the aftermath of „The Origin of Species”, several other authors of the 19th and 20th century recommended the application of new-born darwinism on the field of technology. This would happen in a metaphorical way, with the keyword „evolution” used synonymously for technological development as well as in a more ambitious try to reconcile engineering with natural sciences. At the beginning of the 21st century, the preoccupation with a possible evolution of technology is more topical than ever.

Keywords

Technological evolution, Cybernetics, History of technology, Darwinism, Evolutionary algorithm
