‘a new understanding’

‘The Technological Program of complete control follows from the Scientific Program of complete understanding, in the Newtonian sense of reductionism and predictability. A new technology that is not of control depends therefore on a new mode of understanding. To understand something need not mean to have taken its measure, to know its inner workings, to reduce it analytically…. Some things, perhaps most things, can be understood only as wholes and through their interaction with the rest of the world.’–eisenstein
