dc.description.abstractENGLISH ABSTRACT: This article aims to enhance technology foresight by contributing to technological awareness and wisdom. It is based on an understanding of the fundamental nature of technology, and requires an overarching view. This needs at least three constituents: (1) a universal definition of technology; (2) a central organising framework; and (3) a methodology for measuring technological advance at the national level. The article then addresses these constituents. It examines the status of each and projects what needs to be done.en_ZA
dc.description.abstractAFRIKAANSE OPSOMMING: Die doel van hierdie artikel is om tegnologiese versiendheid te verbeter. Om hierdie doel te bereik verg ʼn bydrae tot tegnologiese bewustheid en wysheid. Dit, op sy beurt, steun op ʼn begrip van die fundamentele aard van tegnologie. ʼn Oorkoepelende oorsig is nodig. Drie elemente is ter sprake: (1) ʼn algemeen aanvaarde definisie van tegnologie; (2) ʼn sentrale organisatoriese raamwerk; en (3) ʼn metodologie om die trefkrag van tegnologie op die nasionale vlak te meet. Die artikel spreek hierdie elemente aan. Dit ondersoek die status van elk en spel uit wat gedoen moet word.af_ZA
