Techniques are a political problem for political philosophy. Classical political philosophy ignores techniques, because they are the business of slaves – who do not exist politically (they are not citizens). On the contrary, modern political philosophy implies a genuine study of sciences and techniques , it progressively internalizes techniques in its discourse, becoming the servant of economics and techniques.
