Technology is means by which human being interact with their surrounding environment. Today it has become more important to see the tools and techniques used to produce or create rather than what is produced or created. Technology has become a parameter to check the level of cultural development of society. An understanding of the natural laws was required to develop technology. This can be understood with the help of different examples like the discovery of fire was a result of the concept of friction and heat. Similarly, in today’s world many diseases have become easily treatable because of the understanding of the secrets of DNA and genetics. Faster planes have been made today with the use of the laws of aerodynamics. All these examples help in drawing one simple conclusion which is that to develop technology, it is extremely important to have knowledge of nature. The interaction between the primitive human society and the forces of nature is known as environmental determinism.
