Article

A broad notion of technocracy can be traced back to ancient Greece. The narrow notion of the term is distinctly modern, inspired by the Industrial Revolution and its consequences. The broad notion holds that the caste or class of people who possess superior knowledge of the good and true should rule. The narrow notion holds that those professionals whose knowledge is linked to physical science and technology, notably scientists, engineers, and policy experts, should rule.
