This paper analyzes the dangers of technology as presented in Stiegler's popular short story, "The Gentle Seduction." The paper states that technology has dehumanizing and addictive properties and supports this with many quotes and analyses from the text.

From the Paper:

" "The Gentle Seduction," by Marc Stiegler paints for us a portrait of what he envisions as the world of the future. While he attempts to portray this future as bright and positive by having us relate to the protagonist who reluctantly but gradually embraces it, the reader finds instead only terror at the thought of a future wrought with increasingly dangerous and dehumanizing addictions, as mirrored by the protagonist's actions."
