Technology and society or technology and culture refers to the never-ending cyclical co-dependence, co-influence, co-production of technology and society upon the other (technology upon culture, and vice-versa). This synergistic relationship occurred from the dawn of humankind, with the invention of the simple tools; and continues into modern technologies such as the printing press.

The academic discipline studying the impacts of science, technology, and society and vice versa is called (and can be found at) Science and technology studies.
