This paper attempts to provide a reflective conceptual framework by using Castoriadis (1987) social and political theory to establish a structured understanding of the interaction between technology, institutions and markets. The aim of this position is neither to test Castoriadis ideas, nor to exemplify every aspect of his theory. Rather, this paper attempts to explore the applicability of some of Castoriadis ideas, and therefore to address the complex patterns of interaction between the perceived, the rational and the imaginary components of significations within the context of technology choice.
