Feenberg issues to 2 examples of democratic interventions into expertise: the net (in which person initiative has motivated layout) and the environmental circulation (in which technological know-how coordinates with protest and policy). He examines methodological purposes of serious conception of know-how to the case of the French Minitel computing community and to the connection among nationwide tradition and know-how in Japan. eventually, Feenberg considers the philosophies of know-how of Heidegger, Habermas, Latour, and Marcuse.
