The aim of this work is to present, in a summarized form, the phenomenon of technology, not only through philosophical views on the notion of technology or ethical-moral dilemmas regarding its use, but also through popular-scientific and science fiction discussion on technology. In the introductory part of the work, the cultural-historical moments regarding the phenomenon of technology have been emphasized. In the central part of the work, the most important questions are the questions on the use of technology and its influence on the man and the nature. Among the uses which penetrate into the human biological, but also metaphysical essence, the genetic modification and cloning have been emphasized. Besides the classical theoretical approaches, the inspiration for this rethinking the issues of technology represented the classics of science fiction literature. After research of the literature, both critics and advocates of technology, the conclusion is that technology can be both horrifying and fascinating, i.e. it can be a cause of both our extinction and our salvation.
