SUMMARY

We intend to consider on the implicit technology values incorporated into the organizations; taking Feenberg, A. in Alternate Modernity. The Technical Turn in Philosophy and Social Theory, where he presents the democratization of his technocratic thesis starting off from three matters: the distortion of the organizational consent formation process by "delegating" the understanding to normalize the devices. The role of articulating the action in that process. And the role of the operational autonomy in the accumulation of technocratic power. To democratize the technical change requires: the possibility to democratize the technological control; the legitimacy of involving the informal public matter; and the public intervention with rationality and the work autonomy of the technical professional. It is necessary to consider about the objections that are made to the theory: the management chooses and decides last; it is not trivial, there is an operator, an object (technical system or input) and a especially technical power that arises in the roles that are carried out by human beings. We try to explain how the technical elections presuppose election norms and they have normative consequences, how they work within the groups, and how the repetitive processes of the group can take qualities of own expansion.  


KEYWORDS   technology, to democratize, values, to delegate, consensus, and autonomy.
