Technological Progress from Ancient Stone Age to Recent Polymer Chemistry World
Technological artifacts are products of a society’s economy, a force for economic growth, and a large part of everyday life. Technological innovations affect, and are affected by, a society s cultural traditions. The invention of tools and techniques is evidence of a society’s ability to solve problems that were encountered in everyday life. Many sociologists and anthropologists have created social theories dealing with social and cultural evolution. Some declare technological progress to be the primary factor driving the development of human civilization. In other words, societies advance when their technologies advance. There were three main time periods or ages when tools were the main technological development The Stone Age, The Bronze Age and the Iron Age. It was the growth of the ancient civilizations which produced the greatest advances in technology and engineering, advances which stimulated other societies to adopt new ways of living and governance. From ancient civilizations until now, there have been many inventions, discoveries, and development of technologies. Many different cultures have had significant impacts upon technological advances. Polymers are said to be the most versatile materials on earth. Almost all of the products we use in our daily lives contain polymers.
