AMAT’s objects can be summarised as empowering it to address issues concerning the support of human
reproduction and the provision of education -- including the research, publication and dissemination of
literature -- about human reproduction.  But ideas such as 'research', 'education', 'human', and
'reproduction' are problematic in that they depend, in part, on how they are interpreted under modern
technologically mediated conditions.


Knowledge concerning human reproduction, then, can no longer be explained under one domain (e.g., within
a medical discourse).  It is important therefore, to keep discussion of technologies on an agenda for critical
debate, especially about how they will, and ought to, impact on education -- on learning, teaching, and
evaluation -- and also on the very process of policy formation -- and therefore, their impact on the objects
of AMAT.

For an introductory research paper that contextualises AMAT's objects within a space circumscribed by the
discourses of technology, economics and culture, see:  AMAT, Technology & Human Reproduction
The topic is further explored in a paper that follows the tradition of Heidegger in questioning technology;
see: The Question Concerning Educational Technology. Both papers are published on the AMAT website.
