The paper (a) provides a rationale for considering ESP in terms of appropriate technology, (b) surveys the philosophical and intellectual underpinnings of the appropriate technology movement, (c) defines key terms and clarifies them with language teaching examples, and (d) briefly considers some objections to the notion of appropriate technology.
